The United States is seeing a large increase in the number of people assuming more responsibility for their own health care. Essentials of Nonprescription Medications and Devices provides a quick, comprehensive reference of products available for self-care. Each chapter covers a common medical condition, including information derived from FDA monographs and current references, and includes: an overview of the condition; drug categories and indication for use; mode of action; warning and precautions; recommended doses; products available. This invaluable text aims to aid both pharmacy students with didactic courses and experiential components of the curriculum, as well as to provide pharmacists, pharmacy students, and individuals interested in self-care an easy-to-use reference for common conditions and products available for prevention and treatment. Updates will be available in June and December of each year on the online resources section of www.pharmpress.com.
