This companion volume to the "Physician's Desk Reference" provides identification of potential problems and drug alternatives. As more patients are placed on complicated multiple-drug regimes, each new prescription poses an ever greater risk of potential problems. The book acts as a source to catalogue interactions, side-effects and indications by both generic and specific brand names for detailed information at a glance. Cross-referenced to the 1997 "PDR", the book gives readers a complete system of drug research, including: interactions - listed by brand and generic names; side-effects - specific signs, symptoms or abnormalities can be looked up to see if any prescribed medication may be the source of the problem; indications - identifying the alternative medications whenever a prescribing conflict occurs; and a contraindications index - a comprehensive listing of drugs that must not be prescribed in the presence of a given medical conditions, narrowing down therapeutic alternatives.
