The Top 100 Drug Interactions: A Guide to Patient Management, 2010 edition, is a pocket-sized reference to drug interactions written by the acknowledged experts in the field. The book contains information on over 5000 individual, clinically significant drug interactions, grouped in over 145 monographs. The Top 100 Drug Interactions focuses on the drug interactions that really matter. Insignificant or drug interactions unlikely to produce patient harm are not included. Drug interactions have been reported to be the fourth leading cause of death in hospitalized patients. Drug interactions cause significant injury to patients, sometimes even permanent damage, often leading to an increased cost of care. This book will help you and your healthcare provider avoid the risk of a dangerous drug-drug interaction. Each drug interaction description includes a brief summary of the interaction. Unlike most drug interaction publications, The Top 100 Drug Interactions offers clear management options, so you can select an appropriate way to avoid potential adverse effects caused by drug interactions. Alternative drugs to consider that would avoid the interaction are included. Interactions between drugs and herbal products are also described. A table listing the metabolic pathway and any enzyme induction or inhibition for over 360 common drugs is included. Also included are potentially important interactions with herbal drugs. The index lists drugs by both their generic and trade names for easy reference. The book is updated annually to ensure timely information is always available. Because patients are being exposed to a rapidly expanding universe of drug, nutrient, and complementary medicine treatments, it is important for everyone to take more responsibility to avoid dangerous combinations of drugs. We have written this book to be accessible to patients as well as health care practitioners who use or prescribe drug therapy. Be sure you inform your health care providers about all the treatments you are using. Finally, bring along your copy of The Top 100 Drug Interactions when you go for treatment so your provider can check your medicines for potential interactions.
