At last, the book on Western Drugs that OM students and practitioners have been waiting for. Integrated Pharmacology: Combining Modern Pharmacology with Chinese Medicine, by Dr. Greg Sperber., gives you basic information about each common class of Western pharmaceuticals. For each category of drug, Dr. Sperber gives us the generic names, pronunciation, and registered proprietary versions, an explanation of functions, mechanisms of action, dosages for adults, children, and the elderly, possible adverse affects, red flags, and the most up-to-the-minute information on specific drug-drug, and drug-herb interactions that may affect your patients. Additionally, the book includes:

  • Commentary by Bob Flaws on a three-part system for evaluating Western meds using Chinese medical principles and a Chinese medical analysis of each class of drug using this three part system
  • Over 90 illustrations showing the functions and mechanisms of each type of drug.
  • Page-by-page glossary of potentially difficult terms throughout the book.
  • A user-friendly design that helps you quickly find the information you need.
