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. This book, now a modern classic, examines these unintended effects and creates a knowledge base of potentially causal drugs that must be considered in medication monitoring activities.
Now in its third 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.
"This is a novel book that highlights the unwanted effect of drugs using an organ-specific approach. This organization allows readers to focus more on the disease state versus individually searching out specific agents that may be causing the pathology."
