The Side Effects of Drugs Annual has been published each year since 1977. It is designed to provide a critical and up-to date account of new information relating to adverse drug reactions and interactions from the clinician's point of view. The Annual can be used independently or as a supplement to the standard encyclopedic work in this field, Meyler's Side Effects of Drugs, of which, the Edition was published in December 2000.

The present Annual reviews all reports presenting significant new information on adverse reactions to drugs from July 1996 to June 1997. During the production of this Annual, more recent papers have been included. The use of the book is enhanced by two separate indexes, allowing the reader to enter the text by drug name, adverse effect name, or drug interaction.
