Consumers’ Guide to Prescription and Over the Counter Medications $230.00
Authors: Lunawati L. Bennett (Associate Professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Tenured Union University College of Pharmacy, Jackson, TN, US) 
Book Description:
Consumers’ Guide to Prescription and Over the Counter Medications is a comprehensive reference guide for consumers to refer to when questions about their or their loved ones diseases or medications arise. The book is organized based on common disease states via different body systems: Cardiovascular disorders (high blood pressure, heart failure, heart rhythm problems); respiratory disorders (emphysema, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, asthma, tuberculosis); gastrointestinal disorders (irritable bowel syndrome, gastro-esophageal reflux disease, constipation); endocrine disorders (diabetes, thyroid, polycystic ovarian syndrome); central nervous system disorders (depression, anxiety, bipolar, Alzheimer’s); infectious diseases (bacterial, viral, parasitic, fungal); pain disorders (migraine, headache); and miscellaneous disorders (glaucoma, psoriasis, smoking cessation, weight management). The book also includes common over the counter dietary supplements and vitamins, and their usage and toxicity levels to watch out for. Each disease state subgroup includes: a short summary of the causes of the disease, general treatment guidelines, and different classes of drugs useful to treat the disease. The summary also includes non-pharmacologic approaches to better manage the disease.

The medication information is organized in easy-to-read tables with information that includes drug names, mechanisms of action to help readers understand as to why they are being prescribed, how/when to take the drugs, storage of the drugs, common and serious side effects, contraindications (when it should not be used), and some important drug-drug interactions.

Please do not self-treat your disease. Make sure you follow the information and instructions from your healthcare providers (doctors, pharmacists, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants) regarding how to take your drug regimens. This book could help you easily avoid preventable drug interactions, physician/hospital visits, and other healthcare costs by simply providing important drug-disease information.(Nova Biomedical)

Book Reviews

“This book serves as a great resource to understand medications prescribed by physicians and to gather basic understanding of their diagnosis.” - Julie Holt, RN, BSOL, CCM, Nurse

"This book will serve as a good reference for customers who want to learn more about different disease states and their respective remedies. It is by no means a Dummies' Guide to Become a Pharmacist, but it will allow the users to better communicate with their pharmacists as they work through different medical conditions. The clear and concise outline will allow users to navigate through this book with ease." - Andrew Tan, Design Engineer

"If you take care of a loved one's medications this book will help you understand those medications and why they are important." - Dade Roberts PharmD. Pharmacist

"This book would be a big help for people to understand their conditions and medications better, and would help them be more active contributors in their own well-being." - Mark Salenga, Physical therapist

"As a University trained, Board Certified physician, I found this book about common medical conditions and their treatment options to be very patient-focused, detail-oriented, and highly readable. It is a handy, quick reference that is an entertaining way to keep patients informed, safe, and healthy." - Kimberly Langdon Cull M.D.
