9781842140314: The Pocketbook of Drug Eruptions and Interactions, Second Edition

More and more people are taking more and more prescription and over-the-counter medications. New drugs appear in the medical marketplace on an almost daily basis. As a result, more and more drug reactions - in the form of cutaneous eruptions - develop from all drugs. To make matters more confusing, the few sources that are available to identify the causes of many of these side effects cannot be accessed by trade brand names.

This substantially updated and enlarged second edition of The Pocketbook of Drug Eruptions and Interactions provides a drug eruption guide that catalogs the adverse cutaneous side-effects for over 700 commonly prescribed and over-the-counter generic drugs. The entries are cross-referenced by generic and more than 4,200 trade names. It classifies adverse reactions in four categories: skin, hair, nail, and other, including mucous membranes, teeth, muscle, and other forms of reactions.

Based upon the newly published 2000 edition of Dr. Litt's immensely popular, widely used and acclaimed Drug Eruption Reference Manual, the pocket guide includes all the data but less references and illustrations of the larger manual, identifying, for each generic drug, trade names and manufacturers, drug type or class or group, clinically important or potentially serious drug interactions, and pertinent notes. It also contains a list of other, less common trade-name drugs from the U.S.A. and elsewhere. Some of the seventy newer generic drugs in the past year included in this edition include:
amprenavir (Agenerase)
bretylium (Bretylol)
candesartan (Atacand)
celecoxib (Celebrex)
dorzolamide (Trusopt)
efavirenz (Sustiva)
fludarabine (Fludara)
ivermectin (Stromectol)
leflunomide (Arava)
mirtazapine (Remeron)
miglitol (Glyset)
olopatadine (Patanol)
pentosan (Elmiron)
quinupristin/dalfopristin (Synercid)
Rizatriptan (Maxalt)
Rofecoxib (Vioxx)
Tamsulosin (Flomax)
Telmisartan (Micardis)
zaleplon (Sonata), and more.


A vital resource for physicians and residents and the only work of its kind, The Pocket Guide to Drug Eruptions and Interactions, Second Edition is conveniently formatted in carry-along size for quick reference in the doctor's office and on hospital rounds and consultations. Includes index of trade and generic drug names.
