1.0 out of 5 stars Not a good buy 13 Feb 2008
By P. J. Coffman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is awful. I am a medical biller and I have looked up several medications and cannot find any of them in this book. It is hard to find anything in this book.
I would not recommend this book to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST prescription & over the counter med. Book on market!! 26 Dec 2008
By C.M. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I will not use another Prescription book, as the is the absolute best one on the market. Every time I know a revised book is coming out ( but not necessary for all people to keep rebuying new ones- I just to), I always keep the updated version in my home, and I will NOT take a Med. prescribed before I read up on it. THIS book helped my husband tremendously and also his Dr. , as my husband had to be rushed to a hospital and it was THIS BOOK that told our Dr. that he had every common, less common & less frequesnt side affect-thus he was able to be treated. This was 4 yrs. ago about my husband. I even bought the book for that DR.,as he liked it alot too and wanted one! Even tells you how long it will take before med. starts working!

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay For Use 9 Jan 2011
By PaganDeva2000 - Published on Amazon.com

The MAIN negative issue I have with this publication is that it does NOT mention the drug dosages. I feel this is equally as important for the layperson to know as well as medical personnel because it leaves room for patients to ask questions if they feel that their dose is too large or too small.
5.0 out of 5 stars Complee Guide to Prescription and Non-Prescription Drugs 22 Aug 2008

It is a very informative book on drugs for the lay man. It was just what I was looking for. Freddie 86
