Focuses on the 500 key drugs that are most commonly prescribed, in an A to Z listing

Fully updated to incorporate new drugs, to remove drugs no longer on the market, and to reflect recent changes in dosages and prescribing practice, this guide provides the most essential clinical pharmacology information that busy clinicians need at their fingertips. Information provided includes dosages, indications, contraindications, side-effects and interactions.

An important section of the book deals with commonly-encountered prescribing problems, selection issues where there are many similar drugs to choose from (such as antibiotics and antihypertensives), and guidance on coping with a wide variety of emergency situations (such as anaphylaxis and overdoses).

Principally for junior doctors, the book is also an invaluable and accessible revision aid for medical, pharmacy and nursing students and a practical prescribing handbook for nurses and pharmacists.
