Manufacturers’ information about drugs, should bear the date of issue

Abstract

Why don’t all drug manufacturers put a date on their information cards, leaflets and brochures? Only a minority of firms seem to realise that out-dated information can be as misleading and dangerous as inaccurate information. If drug circulars are thrown away almost at once the lack of a date is not important, but many doctors and pharmacists build up product information files to consult when they have prescribing problems, and such files easily get out of date.
