Pharmacology for Women’s Health includes discussion of basic pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetic principles so that the health care professional understands when and how to prescribe; chapters describing the pharmacology of specific drug categories that are used for a wide variety of diseases and conditions; agents to promote health as well as pharmacotherapeutic agents for specific conditions and diseases; and a section on pharmacology directly related to women’s issues such as pregnancy, lactation and aging. Each chapter addresses drug therapy for the non-pregnant adult woman, the pregnant woman, the lactating woman, and the postmenopausal woman. Today’s common medication errors include drug/drug or drug/herb interactions and these are included throughout the book. Special chapters exist on cutting edge information such as genetics and pharmacology.
