Drug Information Center

The UW School of Pharmacy maintains the Drug Information Center to provide accurate and complete drug information to health care professionals and residents within the state of Wyoming and to UW alumni.

The Drug Information Center serves as a rotation site for Pharm.D. candidates from the UW School of Pharmacy and as a resource for all UW students, especially those in the health sciences.

All drug information questions are reviewed by a registered pharmacist who specializes in drug information. Follow-up information will be faxed or mailed to you upon request. Please do not hesitate to ask for additional information or documentation, if required.

About Us

The UW Drug Information Center is located on the UW campus in the School of Pharmacy, Room 495. The Drug Info Center serves as a rotation site for 4th professional year Pharm.D. candidates.

Questions can be left by voice mail during off-hours and will be returned the next working day. Emergency questions during these times should be directed to the Poison Control Center at 800-222-1222.
