Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Lisa M. Becker, BSPharm (Temple University School of Pharmacy)
Description: This pocket dosing guide draws primarily from the FDA approved drug labeling showing strengths available, dosage forms, and pregnancy information at a glance.
Purpose: This is a convenient little book to check dosage recommendations, review available dosage forms and strengths, and confirm pregnancy and breastfeeding ratings. The book is small but meets its objectives. It may not, however, meet the comprehensive needs of a clinical practitioner or student.
Audience: Since the book deals only with the dosage for a typical patient, a practitioner would need more information than is presented in a pocket guide like this. The book is derived entirely from FDA drug labeling and, therefore, is not affected by any author bias or credibility.
Features: Categorized by major drug classes, this book is organized by specific uses of common drugs in standardized doses. By virtue of its landscape orientation, it is easy and enjoyable to read. However, it has several drawbacks. For example, no unlabelled uses are included, only standardized "average patient" doses are listed, and there is no documentation of renal or hepatic dosing.
Assessment: This well laid out compact guide is a good general guide to common doses and uses of a wide variety of medications. Its small size, which makes it a portable, easy to transport medium, also means it cannot serve as a sole, indispensable resource for drug information. Rather, it is a general guide, apparently aimed at new general practitioners unfamiliar with the medication class. The information, while current at the time of printing, will become dated.
