Psychotropic Drug Directory is the latest valuable resource to be added to MedicinesComplete

The Psychotropic Drug Directory has been sold by founding editor Stephen Bazire who has released a statement below, following the acquisition.

After 31 editions and over 30 years at the helm of The Psychotropic Drug Directory, I am delighted to be passing responsibility for the publication to Pharmaceutical Press.

As an independent and not-for-profit publisher with an aspiration to become the world leader in the safe and effective use of medicines, I am confident Pharmaceutical Press will ensure the resource continues to be an essential reference for clinical decision-making in mental health services.

From January 2024 you’ll be able to access The Psychotropic Drug Directory through MedicinesComplete, an easy-to-use nationally available online platform. The information will be regularly updated and include links to referenced sources including British National Formulary and Martindale: The Complete Drug Reference.

Understanding the challenges in migrating from a print to digital format, Pharmaceutical Press is offering complimentary access to The Psychotropic Drug Directory through MedicinesComplete until the end of the year.  To find out more or register your interest, please get in touch.

Best wishes

Stephen Bazire | Honorary Professor, School of Pharmacy, University of East Anglia | Director, Mistura Enterprise
