Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Angela Johnston, PharmD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Pharmacy)
Description: This is a concise compilation of the most common adverse drug effects involving the skin, hair, nails, and mucous membranes, as well as drug interactions of both prescription and nonprescription medications.
Purpose: The purpose is to serve as a quick guide for pharmacists on the identification of drug interactions and adverse dermatologic effects involving the most commonly used prescription and nonprescription medications.
Audience: The target audience is primarily pharmacists, but all healthcare professionals may find this reference useful.
Features: Information on over 700 prescription and nonprescription medications is organized alphabetically by generic name. Monographs contain the following information: generic name, trade names, foreign trade names, indication(s), drug category, drug interactions, and adverse drug reactions. If available, the incidence of the adverse reactions is provided in parentheses. In addition, the author includes the number of references that document the reaction in brackets. Unique features include a listing of drugs by class and adverse reaction pattern, description of the 29 most common reaction patterns, an index of both generic and brand names, and glossary of common abbreviations.
Assessment: This is a useful guide to adverse drug reactions. The section that organizes the drugs based on adverse reactions is helpful because it allows pharmacists to identify other medications that may cause the particular reaction. However, the information on drug interactions is limited and may not be as current as other interaction reference books. Overall, this book would be useful for pharmacists to consult when attempting to identify causes of adverse dermatological reactions. Pharmacies and drug information centers may benefit from having this reference.
