Once again the vast amount of data on adverse drug reactions appearing annually in the world literature has been critically reviewed by the expert team of authors and editors working on the series, and the book once more provides a complete overview of all known side effects of drugs, both major and obscure. The `Special Reviews' section gives special attention to up-to-date topics such as: Medicolegal aspects of the benzodiazepines; New drugs and old principles - the flood of new and potent antimicrobials continues; Zidovudine (AZT); Lipid-lowering drugs - a call for caution; MAO inhibitors: which foods to avoid, what to tell patients.
