Today, consumers are offered a number of prescription pill guides on the market. After having worked on THE COMPLETE GUIDE TO PILLS for many months with its editor and compiler, Brenda Adderly, I am confident that this is the most thorough, easy to use and understand reference book available. We were particularly sensitive to the style and format of our book. We were careful to design THE COMPLETE GUIDE TO PILLS with the consumer in mind. You may need to know - - and quickly - - if there are any pills or over- the-counter medications which you should avoid when taking Claritin, for example. That information is easily found by looking up Claritin and reading the section called "Interactions". We incorporated eye-catching icons/titles, extra large typeface, and charts that break down the information into what you need to know now. Our alphabetical listing includes entries for both brand name (Tylenol) and generic (acetaminophen).
Brenda Adderly is a health care professional, researcher, and a New York Times bestselling author. She is the co-author of THE ARTHRITIS CURE.
Want to know more about the pills your doctor prescribed? Do you suspect unwanted side-effects from your over-the-counter medicine?

It covers not only pills, but topical drugs such as inhaled asthma medications.
This straightforward reference book gives you the facts at your fingertips -- cross-referenced with easy-to-read charts and a 32-page color photo identification section. Each entry includes:
* Usual adult and child dosages, what to do in case of a missed dose, and overdose symptoms
