FormWeb QuickStart

The following instructions are for accessing your formulary from the Search tab on the left.

FormWeb will allow you to look up drugs three ways:
1. Search for a Drug by Name
2. Browse Alphabetical List of Drugs
3. Search by Therapeutic Category

Search for a Drug by Name: Type part or all of the drug name you are searching for. (Be sure it's spelled right!) and click the button titled "Go to Drugs".

A list of drugs matching your search phrase will appear in the right side of your screen, both generic and brand names (brand names are bold). Click on the drug that matches your search.

Browse Alphabetical List of Drugs:
When you want to see all the drugs starting with a particular letter, select the letter from the popup menu and click the button labeled "Go to List".
You will see both generic and brand names (brand names are bold) on the right side of your screen. Click on the drug that matches your search.
A detailed result will be displayed.
Remember, you can find related drugs by clicking the AHFS code link in the upper right-hand corner of the drug results.

Search by Therapeutic Category:
When you want to see drugs in a particular AHFS Category, simply click the "Show Categories" button. A list of AHFS codes and T-Class descriptions will appear in the right side of the screen.
You may view the list alphabetically or numerically.
Click the therapeutic category that best describes your search.
All drugs with that AHFS code will then be displayed in the right side of the screen.
