The Side Effects of Drugs Annual is designed to provide a critical and up-to-date account of new information related to adverse drug reactions and interactions from the clinician's point of view.

Under the supervision of the series editors, an international team of expert authors have gathered together the latest information on adverse drug effects from the international literature. In addition to describing new reports of adverse drug effects, the authors have subjected those reports to critical analysis, setting them into context in terms of clinical relevance and importance, and cross-referring to previous reports where necessary. New adverse effects are reported and evaluated and previously reported adverse effects are re-evaluated in the light of the most recent information. A special feature is the reviews, in which selected adverse effects are discussed in depth. The use of the book is enhanced by two separate indexes, allowing the reader to enter the text by drug name, adverse effect name, or drug interaction.

The current Annual is the first update of the standard encyclopaedic work in this field,'s Side Effects of Drugs, Fourteenth Edition, which was published in December 2000.

Covers antidepressants, lithium, hypnotics & sedatives, anesthetics, antifungals, vitamins, vaccines, etc.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
M.W.L. Lee well known for being an authoriative source of information, providing high-quality, well-referenced information.
The Annals of Pharmacotherapy
S. Mitchell easy to read, printed on good quality paper, contains a wealth of references to primary literature sources, and quotes many case examples of adverse drug reactions. The presence of two separate indices, one concerned with drug names and the other with adverse reactions, also enhances this compendium of information. An essential text if one wishes to keep up-to-date with this ever-expanding field.
ISSX Newsletter
P. Folb the most comprehensive and accurate reference source of its kind. ...The 2001 edition is excellent in terms of the scope and accuracy of its information. ...Most will already have the series on their shelves and the most recent volume would be regarded as a valuable and essential addition to their collection.
