This guide aims to provide an accessible source of reference information on some of the drugs which can lead to problems in drug prescribing. This new fourth edition has been thoroughly revised to both include information on new drugs and to add new information on drugs already in use.

Safer Prescribing does not attempt to give direct guidance on the treatment of diseases, but aims to provide helpful information covering specific problem areas in prescribing. Topics covered include: drug interactions, prescribing in renal failure, liver disease, pregnancy and lactation, prescribing for the elderly, and the difficult area of drugs and driving. An individual chapter is devoted to the effect of food on drug absorption. Information is presented in tabular form throughout - the major points are clearly evident and there is no need to read through large blocks of text.
Safer Prescribing is designed for rapid reference and is carried easily in the white coat pocket. Easy to use and well-indexed, this small book has consistently proved invaluable as a quick source of reference on the pitfalls of prescribing for the busy doctor or pharmacist.Review:
"... Dr Beeley has, wherever possible, tried to give guidance on what is important and the size and shape of this little book makes it an excellent pocket guide to some problems in the use of drugs" Pharmaceutical Journal (on the third edition)
