Informed Consumer's Pharmacy: The Complete Guide to Prescription and Over-the-Counter Drugs

by Ellen Brown-Hodgson, Lynn P. Walker
 

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Unlike most handbooks on drugs, this one is arranged by diseases and therapeutic classes, and outlines alternative therapies (including nondrug treatments) for a holistic approach. The result is a more coherent picture of the range of possible choices than is available in books organized alphabetically by drug name. Not everyone will be comfortable with the authors' holistic (and at times homeopathic) approach, or with their degree of skepticism about using drugs at all. Others will find it attractive for exactly these reasons. The text seems generally sound, if a bit sketchy; the references are a little sloppy at times. However, this is particularly good on drug-drug and drug-food interactions. It might be usefully supplemented by more technical drug handbooks, such as United States Pharmacopeia Drug Information for the Consumer (Consumer Reports, 1990) and USP DI, Drug Information for the Health Care Professional (USPC, 1990).-- Mary Chitty, Massachu setts Coll. of Pharmacy & Allied Health Sciences Lib., Boston
