Perhaps I should have an updated version. Fortunately, all of my prescriptions so far are included in this book. Ninth edition, May 2000.

I say that I'm currently reading this because it's on an endtable and every few days I crack it open for various reasons.
Every home should have a copy.

I LOVE THIS BOOK! I find pills in weird, random places and bring them home so I can look them up. I also love to read about side effects. I should've been a nurse...

This is an excellent reference for someone who needs to look up types of pills quite often. I myself have facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy, and if you have ever watched a Jerry Lewis Labor Day Telethon, well that's me, however my type of muscular dystrophy, (facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy) is some what rare and unlike most people you see on the telethon suffering from some sort of muscular dystrophy who are young children; facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy usually comes along This is an excellent reference for someone who needs to look up types of pills quite often. I myself have facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy, and if you have ever watched a Jerry Lewis Labor Day Telethon, well that's me, however my type of muscular dystrophy, (facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy) is some what rare and unlike most people you see on the telethon suffering from some sort of muscular dystrophy who are young children; facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy usually comes along and starts making you sick at about age 32, rarely is it fatal, one percent of us can go blind. The chance's of someone coming down with it is about 1 out of 400,000 Americans will be diagnosed with facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy. Those numbers mean that in San Diego who's 2010 population was 1,301,617 people there are only 3 of us who have this disease. In the Sate of California with a population of 37,253,956 people which means on average there are 93 of us in this state suffering from facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy. In the United States there are with a population of 312,780,968 people there are only around 718 people in this whole country who have facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy. Then in the world with a right at this second population of 7,007,803,250 people, there are 17,519 of us world wide with this disease.

I am in a lot of pain, my blood pressure medicines as well as many others get changed quite often so as a handy reference this is a great book, and now that I am going to school it will also be a great tool for obtaining my degree in alcohol and drug counselor, and possibly as it is to me, maybe you may just find it intresting. ...more

This 15th edition lists numerous medications. It contains information about the drug to include use, side effects, and interactions. Physical descriptions and color pictures are included. It is a very handy reference for anyone using pharmaceuticals.

This should be helpful for people on meds -- and these days, who isn't? -- who need to know more about what they are taking -- and who doesn't? I wish this book listed the rare side effects of meds, like the way Lexapro occasionally makes the taker's hair fall out. Otherwise it is pretty useful.

This is a fabulous reference book about, you guessed it, pills. Lots of info on drug interactions and thorough coverage of side effects. Call me crazy, but I love reading about prescription drugs, especially as we become more and more dependent on them in our society.

This book is a good book if you want something to have at reach without the internet. However the best that I use on line is Drugs.com. I still like to have the book and use it, I may be old fashion but what if there is no internet... lol

Good pics in the middle leaves. We use this (just to have for reference) at Walmart for pill ID purposes. Although I personally use & prefer online sources such as LexiComp or Facts & Comparisons, since those online references are updated more frequently. (Sorry to post this twice, I hit the wrong thing on my iPhone.)

Of the non-clinical medication guides, this has been the one I've found most helpful. The photos of pills are useful, and the descriptions are detailed but accessible to public readers.

I do wish there was more information listed about off-label uses and toxicity, but that's where the PDR comes in.

It's a decent reference for the homeowner. I'm guessing that there are better and more in depth references available for the professional. My friend Robyn, a pharmacist and the smartest person I know, recommended this to me and I take her recommendations seriously. The down side of this book is that I've had to hide it from my mother, a confirmed hypochondriac. :)

I love this book. I work in a group home as a care giver. Also my mother suffers from mental depression so I'm always reviewing medications that are proscribed to her. At work This book is very useful because I'm required to know the kind of medications my individuals or clients take. Let say they take so many weird named Medications like "Fingolimod" it is a S1P receptor antagonist. It reduces the number of MS attacks and delays the worsening of physical disabilities associated with MS. I know I love this book. I work in a group home as a care giver.
