This is a formulary of non-prescription (OTC) medicines. The role of community pharmacist in managing minor conditions is expanding rapidly - the public are currently being encouraged to "self care" and more prescription only medicines are being deregulated to pharmacy medicines status (POM to P). There is therefore a clear need for up-to-date, accessible reference sources to support community pharmacists in a field with an expanding product range. This new edition includes updated material in all areas and also reflects the amendments in legal category status of many products (POM to P). Primary references are also now included to support advice being given.

Non-prescription medicines are an increasingly important area of drug therapy. As part of its national health strategy in the UK, the Government is strongly encouraging self-care, supporting this by reclassifying medicines available previously only on prescription as for sale over-the-counter (OTC). Non-prescription Medicines assesses the range of OTC medicines that can be recommended for the most frequently encountered minor illnesses, plus emergency hormonal contraception and smoking cessation. Revised and updated, this edition: · covers 40 common conditions · includes new chapters on cardiovascular medicines, fungal nail infection, and migraine · discusses the treatment of each condition, with recommendations from the products available · includes evidence to support the product advice. This book will enable pharmacists, GPs, nurses and other healthcare professionals to make well-informed recommendations and to give patients and customers sound advice on non-prescription medicines. From reviews of the second edition '...provides a clear guide to the use of non-prescription medicines and would be a useful reference in any community pharmacy...' New Zealand Pharmacy
