In this much-needed and comprehensive directory, physician Weiner (obstetrics and gynecology/integrative and molecular physiology, Univ. of Kansas Sch. of Medicine) and health reporter Rope give expectant mothers and their health care providers a solid tool for knowing if, when, which, and how much medication is safe during pregnancy and while nursing. Medication safety during pregnancy has limited research and thus little consensus on it exists, even among medical specialists. For example, "two thirds of all drugs sold in the United States are classified as Category C, which means there is a lack of adequate human data to say whether they may harm a developing fetus.with less than 1%.in Category A," meaning safe for use in pregnancy. This more accessible version of Carl P. Weiner's Drugs for Pregnant and Lactating Women includes concise information on how pregnancy changes a woman's response to drugs. Each entry then includes brand and generic names, what the drug is for, how it works, contraindications, side effects and warnings, and specific information relevant to pregnant or lactating mothers. VERDICT The lack of a comprehensive index with cross references is the book's only shortcoming, but it's a big one. Readers have to know to look for pseudoephedrine, as there is no entry for "Sudafed." That aside, this should be the go-to reference in all libraries for medication use during pregnancy. A critical purchase. (c) Copyright 2013. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
