With contributions from the fields of pharmacy, dietetics, and medicine, Handbook of Food-Drug Interactions serves as an interdisciplinary guide to the prevention and correction of negative food-drug interactions. Rather than simply list potential food-drug interactions, this book provides explanations and gives specific recommendations based on the frequency and severity of reactions. Each chapter brings together the unique talents and knowledge of practitioners in different disciplines who provide a clear, thorough treatment of this important subject.


"The book includes excellent guidelines on monitoring nutritional status of patients on medication schedules and reviews how aging affect drug-nutrient metabolism. … The appendices are impressive, covering some of our most common questions … . … I consider this to be one of the most extensive pharmacologic and scientific reference manuals on food-drug interactions in press today, with … 17 chapters that cover a multifaceted array of topics that portray not only the mechanisms involved, but how to put this knowledge into practical and clinical use. … [The book] gives health care providers … a clear understanding of why dietitians make their recommendations, and helps dietitians understand what recommendations to make."
