This is a condensed version of "First DataBank's Evaluations of Drug Interactions", a 1,600-page, peer-reviewed publication that is updated six times a year. This book is designed to facilitate quick access to the information most frequently needed by busy health practitioners. It contains more than 1,100 drug interaction monographs. It features an addition of nearly 100 over the previous edition, including new drug-nutritional supplement monographs. The monographs are organized by drug class. Most contain eight concise pieces of information such as: the title of the monograph by generic name of the interacting drugs; a significance code based on the interaction's potential harm to the patient and its frequency and predictability; a statement on the interaction's potential effects; patient management recommendations for the healthcare professional to consider with respect to the interaction; a summary of findings of studies in the literature; a discussion of pharmacologically, pharmacokinetically, or chemically related agents to either of the interacting drugs; a comment on the postulated mechanism for the drug interaction; a cross reference to the more detailed information, including references, found in "Evaluations of Drug Interactions"; Appendix A complete list of the agents in a specific drug class and a list of monographs with Code 1 interactions; and Index A comprehensive cross reference to the most clinically significant drug interactions, organized by generic name. This book is published by the American Pharmacists Association, the leading national professional association of pharmacists in the United States.
