Quick Look Drug Book

The company I recently began working for asked me to purchase the Quick Look Drug Book as a reference tool, as they use it.  So, I got one...bought it used online so it wasn't that expensive, and I was needing a new drug reference book anyway.

I am just not impressed with this book.  While it does have very useful information in it, I find it is not laid out in the most convenient manner.  The drugs are listed alphabetically by the generic name.  So, what if the doc says the brand name of a drug?  How am I to use this book to look up the spelling, etc. of a brand name drug if I don't know the generic name of the drug so I can find it???  I have hardly used this book at all since I got it....I still go online to look up meds.  I feel like I wasted my money.

Maybe I'm just missing something here.  If anyone has any insight please let me know.  Or if any of you have a better suggestion for a drug guide that is laid out in a better format for MTs, I am open to suggestions.


? re Quick Look Electronic Drug Ref

I'm trying to do a wildcard search for the endings of drug names, eg, *sartan. I read the help file and tried ~, (), ?, and nothing is working. I read the FAQ on the Stedman's web site and it appears to skirt the question and refer the questioner to the help file.

Am I correct that the new 2006 QLEDR does not allow searches for just the endings of drugs? If so, what a waste of money that was.

Quick Look Drug Book CD
Can anyone tell me if they use the Quick Look Drug Book and CD?  I am thinking about purchasing the 2006 set for about $80, the 2007 is not available yet
quick look drug book


Could you give me some advice on drug reference books? Do you recommend people wait for the quick look drug book '08?  Or is there a site online to search for drug information?

I'm new here, and am still studying to be a MT, so I'd like a recommendation from someone who knows  :)

I hope I'm not asking a question already asked 100 times...


Quick Look Drug Book
I would highly recommend Quick Look Drug Book. It is the cheapest book I have found, and it is is the only one I have seen that lists the drugs in both alphabetical order as well as by indication/treatment. In my opinion, it is the drug book with the best format.
I vote for Quick Look Drug Books
Very, very helpful.  Also Stedman's word books quite quite handy.  Googling comes a long way, but I tend to like the books better.  Dorland's medical dictionary is a must have and also electronic spell checkers are great/CDs loaded on PC. 
Quick Look Drug Book 2007 (sm)
CD version.  Does anyone have this and like it?  I have the 2005 version, and could not see much difference in the 2006 QLDB.  Any comments appreciated.
Anybody Use Quick Look Drug Book 2007?

Do you like it? I just received mine yesterday. It does not put a link on the Word  toolbar like the old one did. I called support and they downloaded a file for me to load and now it's on the toolbar, but now I get the message "QLDB.exe" not found.

I have uninstalled (like tech support said) and re-installed but still get the same message.

I checked the CD and it does not seem to have this file on it. Does anyone else have this problem? My task bar is already full so I really need it on the Word toolbar. Thanks

2005 Quick Look Electronic Drug Reference nm
Anyone able to find Quick Look drug reference 2006

If so, where did you purchase it?  Out of stock at the places I have checked.


I have the 2006 edition. But the 2007 of this and the Quick Look Drug Book come out
Quick Look Drug Book (book & CD/ROM)..sm..

Does anyone use both.  I'm definitely getting the CD/ROM and am debating about buying both.  I don't see any reason to have both but there could be something I don't know. 

I noticed CD/ROMs are on backorder but they're selling downloadable versions.  I can handle that.

My doc told me elec. records not working out.
That is "web site" in post above. Also, Auto Copy add-on for Firefox will automatically copy
Auto Copy add-on for Firefox AUTOMATICALLY copies what you select (highlight) on a web site to the clipboard.

Then you can paste it in a document.

It just saves the step of right clicking and then clicking on "copy" to put something on the clipboard. Just select it, and it is on the clipboard.

It only works only on web sites-- only copies stuff you select on web sites, i.e. not in other documents.
Print a copy of the form on your printer, fill it out, copy and send it to your computer via fax may
Just a guess. Or print it, fill it out and fax it to her.
How do you copy your SH file to text - do you copy each dictionary separately? nm
Best battery backup with a reasonable amount of time - just lost report when elec blinked Grrrr
Good drug book vs. internet drug sites
I need to buy a new drug book.  At a prior job, about a year ago, one of the supervisors told me she used the internet exclusively.  What's the consensus and if you prefer the internet, which site or sites do you like.  Thanks in advance.
Post drug questions on the drug board

Okay...sock it to me..when I was even newer than I am now, I wrote "drug alluding stent."  QA sent a correction saying "drug eluding stent."  NOW, I see on Google, "drug eluting stent."  SOoooo, which is it, or are they both correct?  Thanks ahead of time.

Help on the drug board--osteoporosis drug?
Sorry..........thanks in advance, I appreciate it. 
I do not copy to text. I copy the spf sm
file to a disk and save the whole thing there, update it occasionally.
I have a copy
I have a AAMT BOS 2nd edition with CD. It is in good condition and has two highlighted passages. Email me if interested.
If you do need a copy of XP Pro...
Try Newegg. You can purchase software that system builders would buy. It's the same thing you'd find at any major store, without the pretty box. I just bought XP home edition for about $90. It came in a bubble envelope with a manual and all the appropriate documentation and license key. I looked quickly on Newegg and saw XP Pro for $139. You can also ask for XP Pro to be installed on your new laptop from the company you are buying it from.
any way I can get a copy of it
I would love to have a copy of that.....got some friends who are newbies and I would also like to refresh my memory!
I'd like a copy too please....
if you wouldn't mind emailing me one.  Grazi!!!
Can't help copy, BUT
Will you own all the entries you put on the hospital's server? Make sure you can copy your dictionary each day or two and take it home with you. Heavy use of Expanders is so new that there aren't a lot of horror stories being told yet by people whose incomes dropped drastically when they lost their jobs because with them they also lost the personalized dictionaries they spent years developing. But they will be.
Need to get a copy of BOS - 2 or 3,
depending on what your company/client uses. In that there is a list of dangerous abbreviations that are not to be used.
I think you actually have to have a copy,
but you can check with the IRS to be absolutely sure.
Get a copy of the check.
You can usually do it free now with online banking.  Check the legal amount, which is the longhand written out line, to see if it's correct.  If it is correct, send a copy to your auto payment company and have them fix it through their bank.  Sometimes the MICR line can be encoded wrong if someone mistypes or transposes when encoding.  Call your bank and tell them to make an adjustment for the incorrect amount.  However, if you filled the check out wrong, yes, you need to send another check for the $61.00.  If they try to put late charges on, talk to a manager and have the fees waived.
Does anyone know how or if I can get my copy of spellex....sm

off of my old computer? I was able to get a free copy when I went to the VLC about two years ago. I never bought any of the updates...just kept using the one I had downloaded for free. I have since changed to a new computer, but cant seem to get that copy off of my old computer. I was never given a disk, just info to download it. I have a couple of small accouts that I am working on, but am not really in position to buy a whole new program, especially after I just dropped major money on an Windows XP!! Any help is greatly appreciated!! Do you think it is possible the VLC would "replace" it?

can you copy and paste?

If not, check this site out!!!


Wow - it is interesting. You know, there is actually an organization called The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in charge of standardizing all this stuff up-and-coming.

Did you read the part about "MT changing more in the next few years than it has in the last 100"

This is it, right at this site.

It is documentation that the doctor or nurse, or healthcare provider carries and enters at the time of service...

It even automatically codes for billing, etc.

Rather than 'free text' of a doctor dictating, it is standardized text where the person enters the info...

so much to it, and it is exciting, just wished we fit in somewhere...
copy & paste
long, drawn out process which will take tons of MW space, but it can be done.
When purchasing a used copy...sm

Be sure to have the person that sold it to you notify Textware Solutions that they are no longer using it and that you are now the license owner. This will allow you to take advantage of all the benefits of being the license owner such as discounted upgrades, free tech support, etc.


We got a copy of a proclamation by sm
Ronald Reagan circa 1985 proclaiming MT week, and in the mail a plastic container with the company name on, it with about 4 oz of Hershey's kisses and tootsie rolls. Other years, large mug with company logo, and a bag of peanuts. Appropriate.

The are better at Xmas. Usually a small gift certificate to use online. Last you QuickLook (which messes up my computer) because originally it came a software with the computer, but they were to cheap to keep adding it on.
Can I copy IT onto a CD or disk?

I have company issued computer with IT.  I would like to know if I could move IT to a CD or disk so that I can put it on my personal computer.  I have greatly expanded the glossary to cover my area of expertise over the last one year and do not want to lose this.  In fact, I think I would break down and cry if I did.  Plus, am thinking of taking on a PT job and would like to utilize this IT on my other computer.

Thank you.

I'd also appreciate a copy, if you'd be so kind.
Just copy the cd to your C drive
You cd software should have a copy mode. I copied mine from my CD to my C: drive. I put an icon for it down in my quick launch and it works great. I have icons for my Stedman's electronic dictionaries on the quick launch as well. Hope this helps.
You can just copy and paste.
Yes it will conform.  Also Word allows you to use your own spellcheck.  May be a bit cumbersome at first, but should work better than typing directly in Meditech.  It lags a lot. 
Should be able to copy it into any program -- nm
can someone tell me how to copy pcshorthand
No need to yell... :) ... and no, according to the BOS II. Got a copy
copy and paste
The only way I know is to copy and paste.
You can copy all folders by
Right-clicking the Instant Text folder located in C: and selecting Send To whatever drive your flash drive is. The installer is not included in the main IT folder, just your glossaries and backup and stuff. You'd have to install IT on the other computer and then load the folders from your flash drive to the IT folder on the computer. I have my IT backed up with my flash drive but still need the CD to put IT on my home computer.
I just snagged a copy LOL
and I don't give a d____.

And why would you give a d___ if people are offended? LOL it's a scream.
Buy new and copy your favorites.
Just buy a new computer and copy your favorites to it. It's very easy to do. If you cannot copy the file the favorites are in to a disk and transfer them that way, write down the URLs and re-enter them by hand on your new machine.

It is unlikely that anyone will allow you to buy the company machine. That, and their requirement that you not engage in personal entertainment or business with it, is not meant to treat you like a child or to make your life difficult.

This is an effort to comply with computer security requirements mandated by HIPAA. As a part of their business partner agreements, the company has to uphold the same privacy and security standards as the client. That will include restricting access to patient information contained on hard drives, as well as ensuring that information in computers is not affected by malware that can be picked up from visiting unauthorized sites on the net or personal email.

If this bothers you, imagine how much more it will bother you for transcription to cease being outsourced,which looks to be the security solution some large interests are looking at.

copy that! (to my desktop) thank you! NM
Would you please share how you copy---sm
preop diagnosis to postop?  I am really out of practice with recording macros, and your other tips were just awesome.  Thanks!
There is a way to copy Autotext and - sm
your normals, not sure about autocomplete though. You can copy your "normal.dot" file in your templates and transfer that quite easily, I don't know if that covers everything or not. Do a search under your help file on your tool bar in word.

What would you charge to type up sermons from hand written notes, located in Kentucky, I'm thinking by the page, what would be the industry standard?
Been looking for a copy of "True West" which
was a play on PBS in the 80s! Also starred John Malkavich.  A wonderfully funny play.  Wish I could get my hands on a copy.
