Systemic Drugs in Dermatology

by Kabir Sardana

The aim of this book “Systemic Drugs in Dermatology” is to make drug reading enjoyable and quick. That is why, this book includes images of the mode of action of drugs, tabular listing of mode of action, indications, doses that are interspersed with a brief overview of guidelines. Wherever needed, brand names are also mentioned. In India, unlike the West, almost all varieties of drugs are available, and this book discusses them in a prescribed format, which the reader can refer to depending on his/her needs. This book consists of total 17 chapters. The chapters range in size depending on the controversies and importance attached to them. Thus, the chapter on immunosuppressants and steroids are long as they are probably the most commonly prescribed agents by dermatologists. The same is true of the chapter on antibiotics. The chapter on nutrition and skin is long only because there is so much data on it. A few chapters like the one on psychotropic drugs might seem an overkill, but a lot of our patients can be handled better, if we know how to use these drugs correctly. The miscellaneous drugs are probably wrongly titled but have many commonly used drugs.
