Book: Drug-Induced Nutrient Depletion Handbook

We just recently got the book "Drug-Induced Nutrient Depletion Handbook." It is written by a team of pharmacists, PhDs, etc. All the information in this book is backed up by abstracts and studies which are shown in the book. It's a compact book packed full of information in it's about 600 pages. It will be a VERY resourceful book to have on hand. I'm excited to see all the information it has in it. It has more than just drugs and the nutrients they deplete. It has an Alphabetical listing of drugs (everything from anti-inflammatories, steroids, antibiotics, anti-convulsants, etc - it's all there!), an Alphabetical listing of nutrients and the drugs that deplete them, an Alphabetical listing of Nutrient Monographs, and Studies and Abstracts. In the Appendix it has a Drug-Induced Nutrient Depletion Table, Herb/Nutrient Depletions, Nutrient Depletion and Cancer Chemotherapy, and Food-Drug Interactions.

It is a hard to find book, but we were able to find on on Ebay for pretty cheap.

Here are a few links with more information:

The Lexi-Comp Clinical Reference Library (who put this book out) has other titles that sound like they may be a valuable resource. Some of them include:

Drug Information Handbook

Infectious Diseases Handbook

Natural Therapeutics Pocket Guide

Drug Information Handbook for Oncology
