Ed. by Cynthia Knapp Dlugosz.

American Pharmacists Assn.


374 pages




This volume aimed at physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and pharmacists draws from the American Pharmacists Association's Handbook of Nonprescription Drugs: An Interactive Approach to Self-Care. Information has been edited and formatted to include only that which practitioners need during self-care consultations with patients. It covers 25 common self-treatable conditions such as acne, the common cold, cough, fever, headache, burns and sunburn, constipation, eyelid disorders, heartburn, and warts. In an outline format, chapters contain algorithms, etiology, epidemiology, signs and symptoms, treatment, exclusions for self- treatment, follow-up recommendations, information for special populations, cautions and contraindications, and drug interactions. One appendix has recommended intakes for vitamins and minerals. Dlugosz, who has experience in pharmacy publishing and continuing education program development, heads a health care communications and education consulting firm.
