The Formulary Monograph Service (FMS) module, if included in your subscription, delivers formulary monographs (in summary and full review formats) and drug use evaluations (DUEs) developed for recently released and investigational drugs. The content is customizable for use in your organization's formulary management. New Drug Reviews summarize the formulary reviews and DUEs added that month.
