Review:

Each year, 140,000 Americans die from the adverse effects of prescription drug use, and 938,000 Americans are "injured" due to prescription and dispensing errors. Eleven million people are abusing prescription drugs. Drug companies are forming "alliances" with HMOs to control the drugs you take, often at the expense of simpler, cheaper, and healthier lifestyle changes. No wonder alternative-medicine crusader Earl Mindell, author of Earl Mindell's Vitamin Bible and Earl Mindell's Herb Bible, wants you to inform yourself and take control of your treatment. "Physicians ... are trained to diagnose a disease and find a pill to treat it with," he says. It's up to us, the patients, to investigate the potential side effects of our prescription drugs and alternatives to taking them.

Prescription Alternatives is a layperson's crash course in prescription drugs and alternative treatments, such as dietary changes and nutritional supplements. Mindell covers drug interactions, how to read labels and inserts, and how to avoid abuse. He discusses prescription drugs and alternative treatments in detail for heart disease, digestive diseases, respiratory illnesses, pain relief, infections, sleep disorders, depression, diabetes, eye diseases, prostate enlargement, hormone replacement, osteoporosis, and herpes. This is information you won't get from your HMO--and in this case, what you don't know can hurt you. --Joan Price
