About

This is a bit of a nerdy site for sharing ideas related to drugs used in the medical treatment of illness in humans. It is maintained by Merlvin, a practicing pharmacist registered with the General Pharmaceutical Council in the UK.

The information is generally drawn from a variety of reliable sources used by health professionals in the UK, Europe, North America and other parts of the world. These can usually be supplied on request.

As with all analysis, such information is likely to be presented in a way that reflects the author’s understanding of it – for better or worse – hence the reader is advised to exercise individual judgment in reading such material and to seek to draw a balanced personal view informed by reliable independent sources of information.

While the information presented is of a medical nature, it is not intended for use as a substitute for advice from a trained medical doctor, pharmacist, nurse or other suitably qualified health professional with sufficient knowledge of your state of health. In addition, with the evolving nature of medical discoveries and understanding, it is possible that views and methods of presentation might change over time.

The author(s) will not accept liability for the use made by any reader of any information found here.

The views presented are those of the authors and do not represent those of any organisation with which they might be associated, whether in the past or present.

Your use of this site indicates acceptance of these terms.
