Adverse Drug Reactions
Edited by Anne Lee - Principal Pharmacist, Scottish Medicines Consortium, National Services Scotland, Glasgow, UK.
Adverse Drug Reactions is a practical guide to the reactions that affect particular organ systems. Chapters cover the most common types of reaction, how to recognise them, and the medicines implicated most often. This book gives practical guidance on the most appropriate management of suspected adverse drug reactions.
This new edition has been extensively revised and updated to include three new chapters:
- side effects and patients
- pharmacogenetics and adverse reactions
- adverse reactions in pregnancy.
Adverse drug reactions continue to present a burden on healthcare, causing considerable morbidity and mortality. Healthcare professionals need to understand the problem of adverse drug reactions and be aware of how they can be prevented and managed.
