Editorial Reviews

American Journal of Health-System Pharmacists
Praise for the previous edition:

"Since the publication of the first edition... this reference continues to be the most comprehensive resource on the risks of medication use in pregnancy and lactating women.

From The Critics
New edition of a reference that provides information useful to physicians and to pregnant women on the possible adverse affects of various drugs on the developing fetus and the newborn. Entries (approximately two to five pages in length and arranged alphabetically) include the generic name in the U.S., pharmacologic class, risk factor, fetal risk and breast feeding summaries, and references (when available). Edited by Briggs (pharmacy, U. of California San Francisco), Roger K. Freeman (obstetrics and gynecology, Long Beach Memorial Medical Center) and Sumner J. Yaffe (pediatrics and obstetrics, U. of California Los Angeles). Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
