The Geriatric Dosage Handbook, 19th Edition, is endorsed by the American Pharmacist Association (APh) and trusted by clinicians everywhere to help improve medication safety and enhance patient care in the geriatric population.
This handbook follows a dictionary-like format, with brand and generic drug names alphabetically organized and cross-referenced by page number to the generic drug monograph. Monographs feature geriatric-sensitive information, including drug interactions and drug dosing in the elderly, in adults, and in patients with renal and/or hepatic impairment. Also included are the latest Beers Criteria (2013 Update) for risk assessment of drugs to avoid or use with caution in older adults.
