Adverse Drug Reactions

James Wooten, PharmD
Volume: 99 Issue: 9 September, 2006

Abstract:

Physicians are confronted daily with new information about new drugs, old drugs, using these agents in different ways, at different doses and comprehending the safety profiles with all of these medications. These medications may be completely new drug entities, structurally diverse compounds, new formulations of older drugs and even "me-too" drugs which are of the same chemical class and possess the same pharmacologic profile as previously approved medications, although they have slight structural alterations. This "drug-use process" is truly dynamic and health care providers are mandated to be proficient in their knowledge of these drugs, as they relate to their scope of practice.1
