This handbook, which in its early lustrous years served physicians, pharmacists, and pharmacy students, is unlike any other drug reference book in that it allows readers to compare and contrast various drugs within drug categories, thereby enabling them to make decisions on which drug to administer. All other drug reference books merely repeat the drug manufacturers' literature, with no analysis of that information. Nor are there any reports from the published literature concerning use and efficacy of the drugs listed. The clinical drug information with part II contains chapters on drug-induced diseases, drug interactions and interferences, drug use in special populations, immunization, medical emergencies, and nutrition support. There are also appendices that contain useful conversion factors, anthropometrics, and laboratory indices.
