The Pill Book by Harold M. Silverman, Pharm. D. These days information about drugs is confused by the avalanche of information provided by magazine and television ads from drug companies. These ads rarely tell consumers what they are for -- only that you will feel better if you have them. Or, if you have a common symptom, like depression or an inability to concentrate, they can make you better. Fortunately, the drug-buying masses have The Pill Book, which provides detailed information on over 1,800 drugs. Each drug listing contains information about the usual dose, drug interactions and side effects. Listings also tell you what the drug is actually prescribed for so you will now know what all those wonderful drugs advertised on television actually do. This is the eleventh edition of The Pill Book and in today's world it is more important to have a copy than ever before.
