A drug-induced disease is the unintended effect of a drug, which results in mortality or morbidity with symptoms sufficient to prompt a patient to seek medical attention and/or require hospitalization. Since the first edition of this book was published in 2005, numerous drugs have been withdrawn from the market in the United States as a result of morbidity and/or mortality associated with drug-induced diseases. Despite best efforts to assure that all drugs are safe and effective, millions of patients each year develop drug-induced diseases. Every time a patient presents with a new disease or an exacerbation of an existing condition, the clinician should ask, “Could this be drug-related?”
Now in its second edition, this essential and comprehensive resource provides a detailed analysis of how to identify, prevent, and manage drug-induced diseases. Edited by James E. Tisdale and Douglas A. Miller, with contributions from experts distinguished in their respective specialties, Drug-Induced Diseases is organized logically and is easy to use for pharmacists, physicians, nurses, and pharmacy students alike.
Inside you’ll find:
- Chapters dedicated to over 50 disease states.
- In-depth tables, including coverage of drugs implicated in drug-induced diseases, epidemiology, mechanisms, signs and symptoms, risk factors, prevention, and management are included in each chapter.
