Our Content

While great care has been taken in the preparation of the material for this website, medicine is a rapidly changing field. As new research and experience broaden our knowledge, changes in the approach to diagnosis and treatment become necessary and appropriate. Recommended dosage, method, and duration of administration, as well as contraindications to use, evolve over time, for all drugs. Users of the information in this website are advised to check the current product information provided by the manufacturer of any drug prior to its administration. This is particularly important when the drug is a new or infrequently used compound. If you identify errors in the material on this website, please let us know immediately so that it may be corrected.

Patient Privacy

Please note that all identifying information regarding any individual patient, has been removed or edited in such a way as to protect the privacy and well being of all patients. The nature of clinical practice requires that condition specific situations are discussed and used to expand our knowledge and improve the practice of healthcare professionals across the globe. This means that at no time will any patient’s privacy be placed at risk. The editorial board, contributors and sponsors of this website and the membership and associates of the MSGERC are committed completely to the protection and well being of all patients and will not tolerate forfeiture of any patient’s right to privacy.

Consultation with a knowledgeable physician or pharmacist is warranted if you are unfamiliar with a drug or do not have a good understanding of the proper dosage and possible side-effects. Interactions between drugs are also always possible and are particularly prominent for some of the antifungal agents. Review of the manufacturer’s product information or consultation with a pharmacist is advised if you are uncertain about the potential drug interactions of an agent.

The results of therapy with any drug can be unpredictable at times particularly in those with varying conditions and circumstances including but not limited to age, health, medical history, performance status, comorbidities and environmental conditions. The therapies suggested here will not ensure successful treatment in every situation. In addition, these therapies are not inclusive of all proper methods of care, nor does their use preclude use of other methods of care.
