Carry around a pocket pharmacopoeia or Epocrates on your iPhone/droid/PDA. Just look for the common antibiotics, medications, regimens that are written in the charts. Each team has their specific medications they like to order for pre-cultured infections, prophylaxis, etc.

I have itouch too for that purpose.

I got pimped a lot on following type of questions:
most imp. side effect you will worry about drugs.
Which drug from a class is diff from other drug in that class and why?
All drugs from a class has same side effects but diff. drugs have diff. degrees of those side effects.
