This book presents the fascinating but complex subject of Pharmacology in a concise and clinically relevant manner. It discusses Pharmacology from a perspective that can be readily identified by students in the context of actual clinical situations. Unlike most books, which tend to test the student's memory skills, the emphasis here is on a logic-based understanding of pharmacology. This would enable students to easily comprehend and, more importantly, to retain the information presented.

In this book, the different types of drugs, their mechanisms of action, rationale for drug interactions and side effects have been discussed in detail. In keeping with the highly dynamic nature of the subject and the vast clinical research underway, the latest and most widely accepted views are provided at every juncture.
