Overview

This is the 15th yearly edition of The Top 100 Drug Interactions, with more than 300,000 copies in print since the first edition was published in 2000. In this book the authors attempt to identify drug interactions that should not be ignored in clinical practice. Management options are given for each interaction to offer the clinician actions that may be taken to reduce the risk of an adverse outcome. The book also contains a clinically useful and comprehensive table of drugs that are substrates, inhibitors or inducers of cytochrome P450 isozymes and ABC transporters.

Editorial Reviews

Reviewer: Thomas Jacobsen, Pharm.D., M.S., R.Ph.(GlaxoSmithKline)
Description: This annually updated publication covers the management of the most common drug interactions.
Purpose: The pocket-sized book serves as a handy reference for healthcare professionals involved in patient care.
Audience: This book is written for anyone involved in the dispensing and/or therapeutic management of patients' medications regimens. The authors are both university professors who have international reputations in the field of drug-drug interactions.
Features: Nearly 3,000 drug interaction monographs are organized by the top 100 object drugs and subsequent precipitant drugs. Precipitant drugs are then classified into enzyme inducers or inhibitors. The significance of each interaction is classified numerically from highest (1) to lowest (5). A nice feature is the inclusion of herbal-drug interactions, which are not typically found in other pocket version texts.
Assessment: This useful reference easily fits into a lab coat pocket. It is not, however, an all inclusive reference and other more comprehensive texts should be consulted for interactions not cited in this book.
