Overview


Patients everywhere are taking a more active role in their own healthcare than ever before—and this is just the book they need to keep handy. This indispensable guide contains the most current information on more than 700 generic and 2,300 brand-name prescription and over-the-counter drugs—3,000 in all. The material is culled from a database that is continually updated according to the latest FDA reports, and each entry is reviewed by a specialist at Johns Hopkins, giving the book a level of authority unsurpassed by any other home drug reference.

The synopses are written in accessible language and outline all of the essentials: what each drug is for and how it works; dosage, over-dosage, and when to call the doctor; interactions with food, alcohol, and other drugs; plus information for seniors, children, pregnant and nursing women, and others with special needs. There is even a special section on dietary supplements. It is a reference no home should be without.

The information in The Johns Hopkins Consumer Guide to Pills & Medicines is backed by the prestige and reputation of Johns Hopkins Medicine, which was recently rated the number-one U.S. medical center by U.S. News & World Report for the fourteenth year in a row.
