11 BAK-Workshop 16-11-200711 Do you prescribe or dispense brand name products with an extra component?

12 BAK-Workshop 16-11-200712

13 BAK-Workshop 16-11-200713 Adds to brand name products Medical information manager: “There are only few data known on clinical efficacy and safety of combination preparations (components added to brand products).
