The second edition of this compendium, a summary of pharmacology and clinical usefulness of drugs in current practice, is a valuable reference source for all physicians. This edition expands the section on drug interactions with many useful tables. The text is easier to read, and the tables comparing drugs and their dosages should be very useful.
Drugs that were found to be ineffectual and have been removed from the market have been deleted.
