* Categories of adverse drug reactions, eruptions, and cutaneous reaction patterns
* Essential reference information on prescription and over-the-counter drugs as well as herbals and supplements
The book contains...
* A to Z listing of the 1500 most consulted drug and herbal profiles, including generic name and trade names; pharmaceutical company; indications; half-life; and pregnancy category

* Clinical definitions of common and severe adverse reactions
* List of drugs that cause severe adverse reactions
