Book description
Overview: Many physiological changes occur with aging, some of which affect the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of medications. For many drugs, exact dosing guidelines for geriatric patients have not been established and most references do not specifically address the use of medications in the elderly. The "Geriatric Dosage Handbook" provides specific considerations when using drug therapy in older adults, compiled from the current literature and clinical experience. Benefits: This resource contains geriatric-sensitive information throughout each drug monograph, including extensive content on drug interactions and drug dosing in the elderly and adults, as well as in patients with renal/hepatic impairment. Tall-Man lettering is used to help distinguish between look-a-like medication names. A complete Pharmacologic Category Index and Appendix provide valuable supplemental information.
