Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Rahmat M. Talukder, PhD, RPh (West Coast University School of Pharmacy)
Description: This annually published pocket drug guide provides key, must-know facts about commonly used medications and natural and herbal drugs.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide essential information on the most commonly used drugs and herbals to healthcare professionals, although ones who are already familiar with these medications. A handy reference like this is always useful to clinicians. Although many electronic drug guides are available, this print reference will be well used by some clinicians.
Audience: Students, residents, and practitioners in medicine, pharmacy, and nursing will find this handy and useful. The editors are well known in their respective fields, and many of the contributors have been on the editorial board for many years.
Features: "This handy reference covers most commonly used drugs and dosage forms and provides clinically significant facts and key data for brand-name drugs, generics, or over-the-counter medications. It includes information on side effects, significant warnings, and contraindications. Drugs are listed in alphabetical order, with listing by classification in the beginning of the book for easy reference. A comprehensive index of both generic and brand names appears at the end of the book. Quick reference charts/tables on selected classes of drugs and treatment guidelines are presented. Also included are highlighted black box warnings and quick reference tables/charts on select classes of drugs and treatment guidelines, which are expected to be useful to clinicians. Above all, this is easy to fit into a lab coat pocket. There are, however, areas that need adjustment. For example, immunization schedules and a comprehensive list of all drugs and dosage forms under each classification would be helpful. "
Assessment: This edition features 100 new drugs and new formulations and updates on other medications based on FDA actions. The editorial board has done an outstanding job of incorporating the most pertinent information recommended by expert clinicians in the field. This continues to be a valuable tool for healthcare professionals.

    Great Little Book!

    The only thing I wish this book included is the fetal risk ratings. Other than that, it's perfect for pharmacy tech's and pharmacy tech students.

    The other drug books (that are HUGE) are more geared towards doctors, nurses, and students for either of those. As Pharm Techs, we don't need all of the extra information.
