A guide which tells the ordinary reader in ordinary language: when it is desirable or useful to take a drug or to consult a doctor about a prescription, what specific drugs really do, how to ensure appropriate dosages, how to minimize side-effects, and how to liaise with a doctor or pharmacist. Completely revised and updated for its 9th edition, this guide to medicines answers these questions and more. You can now find out how to treat all commonly occuring disorders, refer to a complete A-Z of prescription medicines and check the ingredients of over-the-counter medicines.
