    The IAP Drug Formulary was officially released in 2005 and is now being used by over 10,000 pediatricians all over the country and abroad. More than 20,000 are using the IAP Drug Formulary mobile app. The Quarterly Web Update facility has made the contents quite dynamic. Changes are being made in the formulary as and when new developments in pharmacology and pediatric therapeutics became available.

    After 47 Web Updates, the present 48th Web Updates contents are very different from that in the original book - IAP Pediatric Drug Formulary 2004. Therefore, every 3rd year a new hard copy edition of the book - latest being the 4th Edition - IAP Pediatric Drug Formulary 2015 - is published. The 5th Edition - IAP Drug Formulary 2018 - is to be in print by year end 2017.

    Dear Fellow Academician,

    Today we live in a world which is too big to carry in one's head. Every day we are bombarded with glut of information coming to us from all sides. Social media is further filling all available mind space with a whole lot of mindless trivia. Living under such trying circumstances, having a trustworthy book like IAP Drug Formulary to refer to comes as a great relief. It is the bible we all turn to for confirmation whenever we are left in doubt by our burdened memories
