Casebook in Pharmacokinetics and Drug Dosing uses real-life cases to teach pharmacy students, pharmacists, and clinical pharmacists how to apply pharmacokinetics to formulate proper dosing regimens. In order to be as clinically relevant as possible, the book not only discusses drugs with readily available therapeutic serum levels, but places equal emphasis on high-alert agents with narrow therapeutic indexes.

Each drug chapter is written by clinical pharmacists who have hands-on experience in drug dosing and includes an overview of the drug's pharmacology, including:

  • Indications
  • Mec hanisms of action
  • Toxicities
  • Pharmacokinetics

There is comprehensive review and discussion of each drug's bioavailability, volume of distribution, clearance, half-life, therapeutic drug level monitoring, drug interactions, dosing, and availability. Each chapter is enhanced by numerous patient cases with clear step-by-step answers and explanations. Calculations, equations, and dosing recommendations are provided for each case.

Henry Cohen, Pharm.D, MS (Brooklyn, NY) is Associate Professor of Pharmacy Practice at the Arnold & Marie Schwartz College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences of Long Island University in Brooklyn, New York.
