9780071402613: The Prescription and Over-the-Counter Drug Guide for Seniors

Mature consumers do not have the same reaction to medications as younger adults. Yet, too often, manufacturers, pharmacists, caregivers, and older adults themselves, are unaware of how medications can act and interact in seniors.

Drawing from decades of pharmacological experience, the authors of this comprehensive, easy-to-use book provide detailed information and answers to the most important questions concerning a wide range of prescription and non-prescription drugs.

From the Back Cover:

Become Better Educated About Medications for Seniors

It's common sense that you should be educated about any drugs you use. But how knowledgeable is the average person when it comes to interactions, side effects or recommended dosages--factors that are even further complicated by age? Too often manufacturers, pharmacists, and caregivers are either unaware of these factors, or don't explain them properly.

With decades of pharmacological experience, Eli and Seymour Ehrenpreis give full answers to the most common and important questions consumers ask about new drugs, such as:

  • In what form is the drug available?
  • What are the recommended doses for seniors?
  • What should I do if I miss a dose?
  • What drug reactions or symptoms should I report to the doctor?
  • Should my dentist or surgeon be informed that I am taking this drug?
  • What is the risk factor of this drug for seniors?
  • Should I drive?
  • Is the drug habit forming?
  • Is alcohol permitted?

For both seniors looking to have better control over their medications, as well as for professional caretakers, this book is an invaluable resource.
