- Citing the USP-NF is tricky because it is a two-book compilation (the United States Pharmacopeia and the National Formulary) of 4 volumes and AMA doesn’t provide an example for this in the Manual of Style, so we must improvise based on other AMA examples and suggestions from the USP-NF
- Book title should be in italics.
