When it comes to helping customers make wiser and safer choices in their use of over-the-counter treatments, the pharmacist's best source of information is Nonprescription Product Therapeutics. This text emphasizes the pharmacist's role in triage--assessing the best nonprescription products for a client and knowing when medical conditions warrant a referral to another health professional. Organized by condition rather than by drug, the text is easy to consult, and complements a disease-based approach to therapeutics. Pharmacists will find useful information on ingredients, interactions, contraindications, and other essentials for helping customers choose appropriate nonprescription products. The Second Edition contains additional charts, drawings, illustrations, and tables. The book includes decision-making algorithms, case studies, patient counseling tips, and warnings on dangerous or life-threatening ingredients, actions, or situations. Another unique feature of this text is A Pharmacist's Journal--real-life reports from the front lines by an award-winning professor and researcher with over twenty years of experience in retail community pharmacy.
