This book is very helpful, especially for older people. There are many interactions and side effects of meds that either I am on or my husband is on that we were not aware of. Read full review

User Review  - Penelope Marzec - Goodreads

Everyone should own a copy of this book. The information is presented in a clear and concise manner. While medication can save lives, it can also destroy them. There are medications that the elderly should not take. I wish the book had been written before my mother became ill. Read full review
