Nepalese pharmaceuticals are growing rapidly and playing a vital role in promoting the health status of citizens and contributing to the nation’s economy. The productions of both national and foreign companies (registered in Nepal) are available in Nepali market under various trade names and the necessity of having a simple, systematized and complete book with detailed information on drug directory covering all these products marketed in Nepal has long been felt. Because of this, consultant doctors, medical officers and every health workers of medical profession had faced problems during their work time. So we made an effort as much as possible to cover the entire medical products in a single book in a very concise form. This concept enlightened us the pathway for the creation of NIMS (Nepal Index of Medical Specialties’). And, because of, strong determination, hard work and support of everyone this book have already been published for FOUR editions: NIMS- I, II, III,IV . We received tremendous love and enormous support from many pharmaceutical companies’ and other professional experts in these four editions which gave us great inspiration for upcoming future. After the great success of first, second and third and fourth edition of NIMS and after getting few experiences from previous editions, this 5th edition NIMS-V is now in your hand, which has been revised thoroughly, mistakes corrected, updated more and presented in an easy and attractive way to view the entire descriptions of drugs available across the country.
