Hi, I was looking for some good pharmacy blogs, or forums, where new products are discussed, such as new drug trials,newly approved drugs, rumors, etc...does anything like this exist?

Not sure about blogs or other forums.. but I always thought medscape was a good site where they cover most of the big news topics in pharmacy

http://www.medscape.com/pharmacists

Also the pharmacists letter.. but you need a subscription i think

If you join ASHP at your school, you get a daily briefing that links to articles about new drugs, trials, business news like mergers, lay-offs, etc., pharmacy and health related news and a lot more. Today I learned that Medicare rate cuts helped reduce inappropriate use of GnRH agonists in men with prostate cancer, that Merck can't make enough shingles vaccines and that IV phenytoin might get a new warning label. Those were the top three items and today there were about 15. You can't discuss items like on a blog but it does deliver the info in a convenient format.
