This book has truly vastly surpassed my expectations. It has several indexes- one comprehensive index, one for drugs, one for nutrients and the drugs that affect them, monographs on all the nutrients, and then the piece de resistance, the abstracts of the medical literature to back it all up.
Written by a team of pharmacists, it is very even handed and lists the negative literature as well as the positive. Thus one can ascertain which nutrients are affected by which drugs, and vice versa and quickly review some of the medical literature to make up one's own mind. I've found it helpful.
Some good examples are that omeprazole reduces B12 absorption around 70%, that simvastatin reduces Q10 production significantly, HRT reduces B vitamins, anticonvulsants reduce vit D folate and calcium.
Unfortunately it doesn't deal with anesthetic gases- N2O depletes B12 and halothane causes oxidative stress on the liver.
I still have more to learn about this book, but it is one of my best purchases.

This book needs to be in every medical office and pharmacy nation wide. Instead of killing over 200,000 Americans every year, this book may save millions by just letting them know how drugs deplete our bodies of essential nutrients.

This is an integral part of my practice and I wish I had this years ago.

This allows me to make more informed recommendations for glyconutrients, phytonutrients, vitamins, minerals, etc.

This book is a must for anyone coaching or advising any one on medications. Too bad it is out of print as I bought 2 copies for my offices in 2007 for $29.99 and they are now only available for $299! I don't let my copies out of my sight! I contacted the publisher for a third edition and as of 2008 no takers. We need to get this updated and back in print.(This is the 2nd edition).

This book is the most comprehensive book on the topic of how drugs effect nutrition I have seen anywhere. It is an excellent quality product and I highly recommend it.
