From Barnes & NobleWe're all familiar with the pharmacist's typical role -- doling out prescriptions -- but most of us do not realize the untapped potential of the pharmacist to help us navigate the sometimes mind-boggling assortment of over-the-counter products offered in the drugstore. In this excellent sourcebook a respected pharmacist addresses an array of common ailments, prescribing effective non-drug remedies and over-the-counter treatments, as well as indicating when professional advice should be sought.
Although it does not purport to be a comprehensive reference for every complaint, the book's listings are thorough enough to include everything from common colds, hair loss, and PMS to foot care for diabetics and restless-leg syndrome. The handy question-and-answer format and reader-friendly organization (questions are grouped into sections such as "Legs, Feet, and Toes," "Embarrassing Questions," "Allergic Reactions," and "Women's Health") -- combined with the author's warm, knowledgeable responses and humorous interjections -- make this an ideal guide to keep around the house.
