From Booklist: With more drugs becoming available without prescription and more people treating themselves for minor ailments, accurate information about over-the-counter medication is a necessity. This handbook, written by two pharmacists and a physician, offers an overview of this subject.
The book is organized alphabetically by broad topics: diet aides and stimulants, foot care, pain and soreness relievers, etc. Each section contains an introduction explaining the types of drugs available to treat the symptoms in question and instructions for using them safely and effectively. This is followed by discussions of each type of drug and its ingredients. Drugs are listed by generic names with trade names mentioned in the articles. The index lists both trade and generic names. A separate symptom index refers users to appropriate areas within the book. In addition to drug information, the authors cover such devices as blood pressure cuffs, glucometers, and infant home health care products. They also offer brief advice about alcohol interactions with other drugs, drugs and pregnancy, first aid, and poisoning. There is even a section on pet care.
This book offers less detail than The Complete Drug Reference (Consumer Reports, annual), but it covers a wider variety of products. It also lacks the color identification section present in The Complete Drug Reference and The Physicians Desk Reference for Non-Prescription Drugs (Medical Economics, annual). Some of the items in the bibliography are a bit dated, too. Despite these shortcomings, The Handbook of Over-the-Counter Drugs and Pharmacy Products is a useful, reasonably priced source that will serve as a good companion to The Complete Drug Reference.
