Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Brett L. Geiger, PharmD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Pharmacy)
Description: The American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) provides pertinent, general drug information for numerous prescription and herbal medications in this handbook. It is a first edition reference.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide accurate, concise, up-to-date drug information in a portable, easy-to-read format.
Audience: This reference is primarily intended for pharmacists, pharmacy students, and pharmacy residents. However, other healthcare professionals may find it beneficial to their practice. The ASHP, a well-respected pharmacy organization, co-published this handbook with Springhouse Corporation. Several clinical pharmacists, from a variety of specialties and backgrounds, were consulted.
Features: An alphabetized listing of over 2,500 drugs is provided. Drug entries usually have a section on indications, dosing, contraindications and precautions, overdosage, pharmacokinetics, adverse reactions, interactions (including drug-drug, drug-herbal, drug-food), clinical considerations/monitoring, and patient counseling. Other features include pictures of over 300 commonly prescribed medications and overviews of 39 pharmacological classes. There are also ten appendixes on such topics as how to give an injection, calculating creatinine clearance, therapeutic drug monitoring, and herbal medicines. Another unique feature is a Web site given to access drug updates or new drug approvals.
Assessment: This is an extremely useful reference for pharmacists and other health professionals, and its compact size makes it easy to carry and handle. It has many features similar to those found in Lacy's Drug Information Handbook 2000-2001, 8th Edition (Lexi-Comp, 2000). Either reference would be a valuable tool for pharmacists.
