Management of antibiotic therapy is one of the most complex and important areas in medicine.  Once the clinician has selected an antimicrobial to use, this guide provides all the essential information required to administer the antimicrobial safely and effectively: dosing schedules, side effects/toxicity, drug-drug interactions, use in renal failure, hepatic dysfunction, pediatrics and pregnancy, and recommendations for breastfeeding.
