This site is advertised by the UK National Health Service and contains PIL (patient informations leaflets)which are useless and SPC (summary of product characteristics) which are really helpful.
I would stress however that the info is written by the drug companies and does not have (to me, at least) the full authority of British Pharmacopoeia.
You do need to register with them username, password but there is no charge.
For US and other sufferers, I do not know how easy it is for you to get good information. This may be worth trying if you find it difficult. Remember to use the drug name because trade names differ in UK.
Most of the pharmacopoeia sites I visit are locked up. I used to read pharmacopoeia in my library but out in the sticks here the libraries don't have them.
All the pages of interest I save on my pc for future reference. I have the info for prednisone, verapamil, ergotamine, sumatriptan (Imigran, Imitrex) and Lithium.
If you have trouble I can post them.
