Side Effects of Drugs Annual

A worldwide yearly survey of new data in adverse drug reactions

Edited by

  • Jeffrey Aronson, Reader in Clinical Pharmacology

The Side Effects of Drugs Annual was first published in 1977. It has been continually published since then as a yearly update to the voluminous encyclopedia, Meyler's Side Effects of Drugs. Each new Annual continues to provide clinicians and medical investigators with a reliable and critical yearly survey of new data and trends in the area of adverse drug reactions and interactions. An international team of specialists has contributed to the informative Annual by critically interpreting it and by pointing to whatever is misleading.
