Maximising the benefits and minimising the risks of powerful modern drugs requires a firm scientific understanding of basic pharmacology. This Third Edition of How Drugs Work equips readers with a set of clear concepts for matching the pharmacology to the diagnosis. Instead of providing overwhelmingly comprehensive information, it condenses the aspects of pharmacology directly relevant to everyday practice into a concise, accessible volume, including new material on the half life of drugs, patient non-compliance and severe chronic inflammation, as well as revisions and updates to reflect the latest knowledge and terminology. The book remains indispensable for those with prescribing responsibilities such as nurse prescribers, general practitioners, pharmacists and dentists in mid-career who wish to update their knowledge, nurses who require an understanding of drug actions and interactions, and pharmaceutical industry representatives. Medical students will also find this a useful introductory text.
