This is an eyeopening book. It should be must reading for anyone and everyoen who takes prescription medication and even over the counter medicines. The information provided has enabled me to make sense of many of the side effects of the mediations I take - and I only take three, so imagine if you are taking many more than three, and has opened my eyes to the fact that my doctor and the medical profession in general really doesn't attempt to find out what your (the patients) problems are,they just treat the side effects which leads to more side effect and more treatment/drugs, ad infinitum. I highley recomend everyone read this book regardless of age and drug use. It is an eye opener and really full of necessary information. It it very ewll written, easy to read and most informative
