    It is always a pleasure to review a new edition of a book that you have used before. Baselt's first-rate reference is now available in its fifth edition. Because of the increase in new drug entities, it is larger and the addendum to the book signals the rebirth and renewed therapeutic interest in natural supplements. Calling a drug a food supplement gets around many regulations placed on prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) drug products. Because of globalization and harmonization of drug standards, many changes are occurring in the U.S. that will allow many drug substances in their natural form to be sold as food supplements. Baselt has added an entry in the addendum on Melatonin! More will come in the sixth edition.
