The conditions are:

  • As extensive and explanatory as Goodman and Gilman's The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics, Twelfth Edition

  • With additional extensive and thoroughly explanatory information on drugs (e.g. flupirtine, piracetam, nefopam, etc.) that are used elsewhere in the developed/semi-developed (like Russia or China) world (e.g. European countries) but not in the US.

  • Additional information about the medically recognised (in some of the world at least) herbs cannabis sativa and hypericum perforatum (St. John's wort; recognised in Germany).

If there is no such book then the European (or a European, like for instance the British equivalent. So long as said equivalent comes in English) equivalent of Goodman and Gilman's will be accepted.

  • $\begingroup$ We're encouraged to use Rang & Dale's pharmacology but I don't know if it will go into enough detail for you. You might also want to try and get your hands on a BNF for the clinical side of pharmacology if you're interested in UK practices. $\endgroup$ – Rory M Mar 29 '13 at 12:13

A title called Essentials of Medical Pharmacology fulfills these criteria and is quite popular in India.

Reference to the current edition:
