Pediatric Drug Companion

by Jitender Nagpal, HPS Sachdev, Panna Choudhary

This title seeks to address the paucity of a reliable, concise and yet comprehensive text on the subject. Meticulous efforts have been directed towards specifically collecting and providing information about the pregnancy category of the drug, compatibility with lactation and dose adjustment in renal and hepatic derangements since such information is indispensable for astute pediatric practice but often cumbersome and difficult to trace. Vaccines have also been included for ready reference. A separate section on laboratory values has been added for convenience. Under each drug, a few commonly available commercial preparations have been enumerated for purely illustrative purpose; this does not imply the authors’ endorsement or recommendation to use these particular brands in preference to others. The individual drugs have been detailed in an alphabetical manner in the appropriate system to which their primary utility can be classified. To facilitate easy tracing, an index has also been provided at the end. This ready yet authentic reckoner of drug usage would prove invaluable for all pediatricians. It would be of particular benefit for Residents starting their career and practicing pediatricians.
