...This book appropriately seeks to provide an informed view of unwanted drug effects in order to make it possible to assess the potential benefits versus the potential risks of the drug to the patient. This objective is thoroughly met. ...The book covers essentially all drugs and drug classes currently used in clinical medicine. It is comprehensive with 49 chapters, including a chapter on the increasing important alternative (or complementary) therapies, and a chapter on miscellaneous agents and medical devices. Comprehensive indexes of drugs and of side effects are included. ...This encyclopedic and authoritative book will be of use to residents and practitioners in all specialties of medicine and pharmacy. This is an excellent and needed update of the venerable tome on adverse effects of drugs. A limited but systematic search of therapeutic drugs did not uncover any significant omissions.
...When information in relation to adverse effects of medicinal products is required this book is, in my view, one of the best sources available.
