Drugline is a full-text database with evaluated drug information. The database was developed in 1984 at the Drug Information Centre (Karolic), Department of Clinical Pharmacology, Karolinska University Hospital, Stockholm, Sweden.
It contains questions and answers, which have been handled by the regional Drug Information Centres at departments of clinical pharmacology in Sweden, Odense (Denmark), and Turku (Finland).
Karolic is responsible for the administration of Drugline and each centre is responsible for its own questions. The questions in the database are patient related and concern adverse effects, drug interactions, drug therapy and drug treatment during pregnancy and lactation.
