Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Kristina L Teso, PharmD. Candidate(Purdue University School of Pharmacy)
Description: The 5th edition of this handbook presents a concise guide of therapeutically relevant drug interactions and recommendations for handling the interactions when they arise. The previous edition was published in November 2001.
Purpose: The purpose of the book is to provide a condensed version of a larger publication of therapeutically significant drug interactions. This pocket guide serves as a quick reference for those interactions commonly found in the health care setting.
Audience: In my opinion, the book is geared towards health care professionals dealing with medicinal therapy in patients, including pharmacy, nursing, and medical students, residents, and practitioners. All the editors are registered pharmacists and provide a credible authority for the subjects addressed in this book.
Features: The book is divided into chapters covering different therapeutic classes of drugs, including analgesics, antihypertensives, antipsychotics, and many others. Each chapter alphabetically lists the pertinent drugs in each class and the major common drug-drug interactions associated with each. The index is a helpful addition for finding specific medications if the therapeutic class is unknown. The material is presented clearly and concisely throughout the book. The only shortcoming of the book is the similarities in content and appearance to another popular drug reference publisher.
Assessment: The book provides a handy reference for any healthcare setting dealing with medication management. Its ease of use and relatively small size make the book a quality addition to any drug reference library. This book can be easily compared to a similar reference published under the Lexi-Comp name, Drug Interactions Handbook, 2nd Ed. 2004, Bachmann, et al. ISBN 1-59195-089-9. Both resources are easy to use and provide comparable content. This updated edition accounts for recent additions to the drug market and justifies frequent updating to keep health care practitioners consistently informed.
