Center for Drug information and Natural Products

Non-Biased Information on Drugs and Natural Products

What We Do

The Center provides free, comprehensive, non-biased information to healthcare professionals and consumers by responding to inquiries concerning drugs and natural products, such as:

  • Foreign product identification
  • Adverse reactions
  • Drug-drug and drug-natural product interactions
  • Safety of use during pregnancy and breast feeding
  • The therapeutic use of conventional and natural products

Need Information on a drug or natural product?

Healthcare professionals can submit an inquiry by emailing us at or calling us at 617.732.2759. We are open Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

Inquiries are received and researched by sixth-year Doctor of Pharmacy students conducting a rotation in drug and natural product information or CDINP faculty. All responses are verified by CDINP faculty, and most inquires can be answered either on the same day or within 24 hours of when they are received. All requests are confidential.
