This is a handy-size vade mecum that describes and catalogs the adverse cutaneous side effects of 620 commonly prescribed and over-the-counter drugs, cross-indexed by generic and more than 1,100 trade names. It classifies adverse reactions in four categories: skin, hair, nail, and other, including mucous membranes, teeth, muscle, and other forms of reactions. Based upon the newly published 1999 edition of Dr. Litt's immensely popular, widely used and acclaimed ("as important as the annual PDR books") Drug Eruption Reference Manual, this pocket guide version includes all the data, less references and illustrations, of the larger manual, identifying, for each generic drug, trade names and manufacturers, drug type or class or group, clinically important or potentially serious drug interactions, and pertinent notes. It also contains a list of other, less common trade-name drugs from the U.S.A. and elsewhere. Also from the 1999 edition are 50 new generic drugs that include Viagra (sildenafil), Zyprexa (olanzapine), Trovan (trovafloxacin), and others, and many new combination drugs, including Arthrotec, Lexxel, Lotrel, Tarka, Teczem, and more. Litt's Pocket Guide to Drug Eruptions and Interactions is the only work of its kind - comprehensive, authoritative, up-to-date - and is conveniently formatted in carry-along size for quick reference in the doctor's office and on hospital rounds and consultations. A vital resource for physicians and residents.
