Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michael C Barros, Pharm.D., BCPS, BCACP (Temple University School of Pharmacy)
Description: This reference provides a summary of drug-drug interactions as well as risk factors, a rating of the interaction, mechanism of action, clinical evaluation, and management options.
Purpose: It is designed to be used by healthcare providers who prescribe, dispense, or administer medications. The information provided in the analysis take many situations into consideration, including predictability of the interaction, likelihood that drugs will be used clinically in the same manner as published in reports, and legal considerations. The book also provides management options for each interaction, thus allowing members of the healthcare team to select from among courses of action to reduce the likelihood that an adverse event will occur. The authors meet these objectives and the information is well organized, relevant, and well referenced.
Audience: Many members of the healthcare team will find this information useful, including physicians, pharmacists, nurses, and students. This is a valuable tool for assessing and managing drug-drug interactions that may occur in everyday practice.
Features: The book begins by describing pharmacokinetic drug interactions as well as mechanisms and clinical characteristics. An extensive collection of alphabetized monographs follows, providing summaries of the interactions, risk factors, proposed mechanisms, clinical evaluation, management options, and references. The interacting drugs are assigned to one of five classes based on the intervention needed to minimize the risk of the interaction. The book provides a quick way to look up interactions as well as a rating system that will help clinicians in deciding the best course of action to take if an interaction is observed. Finally, the book includes information about nonprescription medications, which is a very attractive feature given the lack of resources dealing with this area.
Assessment: This is a valuable reference for any healthcare providers who prescribe, dispense, or administer medications. With new drugs constantly being developed, an updated book evaluating drug interactions and their clinical significance is needed in any clinical setting.
