Providing valuable information on the differential diagnosis of symptoms that are commonly seen by the community pharmacist, this comprehensive, clearly structured, and well-illustrated guide helps readers identify common conditions, recommend appropriate medications, and determine when physician referrals are appropriate. Organized primarily by body system, each chapter begins with an overview of the system and a brief guide to history taking. Then each symptom or condition is examined with discussions on its background, prevalence, etiology, differential diagnosis, questions to ask the patient, and conditions to eliminate. The book also contains algorithms to aid in diagnosis, summary tables on what questions should be asked and why, and references for further study.
