Lexi-Comp updates drug handbook for dentistry

Lexi-Comp has released the 15th edition of its Drug Information Handbook for Dentistry. The book includes dental-specific content on thousands of drugs, natural products, and dietary supplements.

The latest edition features 40 new drug monographs and a new drug monograph field, Effects on Bleeding, according to the company. Other notable enhancements include a section on the dentist's role in recognizing domestic violence, abuse, and neglect; new dentifrice appendix tables; and updated special topics.

Monographs are alphabetically organized and cross-referenced by brand and generic names. Dental-specific fields, such as Effects on Dental Treatment, Effects on Bleeding, Local Anesthetic/Vasoconstrictor Precautions, and Dental Comment, are highlighted in red for easy lookup, the company noted.

Special sections dedicated to medically compromised patients, specific oral conditions, and sample prescriptions are also included.
