Overview

This handy book provides brief descriptions of clinically important drug interactions selected from the authoritative looseleaf reference, Drug Interactions Analysis and Management. Only level 1 and 2 interactions and those level 3 interactions most likely to affect patient outcomes are included. The information is compiled from up-to-date biomedical studies and case reports and presented in a quick-reference format.

For each interaction, the authors provide a clinical significance rating and information on risk factors, similar drugs that might also interact, and patient management. The book is indexed by generic drug names, with selected trade names cross-referenced to generic equivalents.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Thomas Jacobsen, PharmD, MS, RPh, FASCP (ViroPharma Incorporated)
Description: This is a smaller compilation of significant drug interactions derived from a more comprehensive volume.
Purpose: The purpose is to serve as a resource in the management of drug interactions for healthcare providers.
Audience: It is targeted to anyone involved with the prescribing, dispensing, or administering of medications.
Features: This book covers only clinically important drug interactions from Class 1 (avoid combination) to Class 3 (minimize risk). It is dedicated to providing healthcare professionals management options for each interaction. Monographs are organized alphabetically and each contains a summary, risk factors, related drugs, management options, and references.
Assessment: This is a very useful reference for healthcare professionals. Many computer programs used today identify drug interactions but do not offer management solutions such as those found in this book. It should be noted that two types of interactions cannot be found in this book: anesthetics and drugs of abuse. For a more comprehensive guide, Hansten and Horn Drug Interactions Analysis and Management (Wolters Kluwer Health, 2001) should be consulted.
