For thirty-four years, this book has been followed widely in the country.

The new edition includes two new chapters, and the text has been rearranged at many places. The book integrates pathophysiology of diseases with pharmacology and the rational drug therapy, and forms a bridge between basics and clinical practice. The information and recommendations given are clear, concise, unambiguous and practical for the drug management of patients, both in outpatient and inpatient settings. Bold headings, plenty of summary tables and diagrams, and an extensive index allow easy access to the specific information one requires.
