Systemic Drugs in Dermatology

by Kabir Sardana

The aim of this book “Systemic Drugs in Dermatology” is to make drug reading enjoyable and quick. This book consists of total 17 chapters, which include antibiotics, antifungal medications, antihistamines, antiandrogens, antiviral drugs, biological drugs in dermatology, immunosuppressive drugs, corticosteroids, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and analgesics, photochemotherapy, retinoids, vasoactive drugs, psychotropics in dermatology, intravenous immunoglobulin, and miscellaneous drugs. The book has been practically rewritten with varying degrees of changes in chapters though some would seem to be like the last edition. Each chapter begins with an overview and the drugs part has a table on monitoring protocols. Thus, the chapter on immunosuppressants and steroids are long as they are probably the most 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.
