Derived from the Commonly Used Medications chapter in the popular Clinician’s Pocket Reference, this manual includes more than 1000 commonly used drugs and presents bottom line, essential clinical data relating to the selection and administration of these drugs. The key to the book is what is does not include. By focusing on commonly used drugs and leaving out drugs that are rarely if ever used by interns and residents, this manual targets a unique spot in the drug/therapeutics book market.
Organized alphabetically by generic drug name, the CPDR lists for each entry selected essential data such as common uses; mechanism of action; dosage (adult and, where applicable, pediatric); cautions; contraindications, formulations, and common side effects. It also provides a list of the medications organized by drug classification.
