4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!
"This will serve as an invaluable guide for various medical professionals and basic scientists, as well as pharmacology students with an interest in understanding the relevance of drug interactions to pharmacotherapy....The book is extremely useful as a quick yet thorough guide through the wealth of information that exists for the most common drug therapies....this [book] is unique in its careful consideration of the relevance of dietary supplements to the discussion of drug interactions."-- Doody's Review Service

Drug Actions and Interactions is a handy easy-to-access guide to understanding what major drugs are available for specific diseases, how selected drugs produce therapeutic benefits, side effects that may occur when taking these drugs, and which drugs and supplements should not be taken in combination with each other.

Applying the 300 most often prescribed drugs in the United States to more than 80 common disorders, Drug Actions and Interactions discusses each drug's mechanism of action, side effects, and interactions with other drugs. Molecular structures of medications are also included to help you understand their mechanisms of action. Coverage includes drugs that act on the major systems (cardiovascular, respiratory, gastrointestinal, genitourinary, endocrine, neuronal); bone, muscle, skin, and joints; and general health.

You will also find an appendix listing major drugs currently in use in each therapeutic classification. Thirty-two additional appendices detail interaction between a therapeutic group of drugs and an individual drug or group of drugs, such as interactions of beta-blockers, alpha-blockers, calcium-blockers, etc.
