It also includes 667 disease treatment reviews. It was first published in 1883 under the title Martindale: The Extra Pharmacopoeia. Martindale contains information on drugs in clinical use worldwide, as well as selected investigational and veterinary drugs, herbal and complementary medicines, pharmaceutical excipients, vitamins and nutritional agents, vaccines, radiopharmaceuticals, contrast media and diagnostic agents, medicinal gases, drugs of abuse and recreational drugs, toxic substances, disinfectants, and pesticides.

Alternatively if the drug is not available, the class of agent can be determined allowing a doctor to determine which alternative equivalent drugs can be substituted. Monographs include Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) and Anatomical Therapeutic Chemical Classification System (ATC) numbers to help readers refer to other information systems.
Martindale is arranged into three main parts followed by two extensive indexes:
Digital versions include an additional 1,000 drug monographs, 20,000 preparation names, and 2,000 manufacturers.
