I haven't had this book long but have yet to come accross a term that I can't find in it. There is a section at the beginning that covers how drugs work. This is followed on a section on vrious medical condidtions and drugs used for those - this is very detailed and informative. The main section is an alphabetical 'dictionary' of drugs and medicines which is easy to access and contains very detailed and useful information.

As a therapist I find this book so useful as clients often are taking prescription drugs without knowing what they are for and by looking them up in this book I can get valuable information to help me to decide whether or not it is safe for me to massage the client.

The book is broken down into various sections such as 'understanding drugs', 'drug groups' and an 'a-z of drugs'. The information in every section is backed up with great illustrations an diagrams. Also very detailed an easy to understand throughout

Last but not least there is a first aid guide in the back!

Great stuff all in all.

An essential guide to what you're being prescribed, what it's likely to do ... and what you shouldn't mix it with! Wonderfully reassuring when you need some basic background information without being baffled by science. This is my third update ... I wouldn't be without a copy.

Was given the 1998 edition, and just found it useful for patient education, FAQs and really easy to use. Cheaper thatn a BNF but way more practicle. The only down point would be its reduced content of medications when compared to the BNF.

Excellent book, full of informative breakdowns, easy to understand, and descriptions of most everyday drugs/medicines. Photos useful of some of the drugs included, makes identification easy. Excellent for anyone who requires reference books for work, studying or just general reading.

Before coming across this book at work; I was totally in the dark about what medication or side effects they could have. Since reading the book at work, I bought the book.

Extremely helpful, plain simple layout and easy to understand text.

Worth buying and everybody should have a home copy.
