This book is a fantastic reference guide to have at home for quick access to up to date information on many common as well as uncommon medications. The author, Dr Jonathan Upfal, has a comprehensive background in medicine after graduating with honours from the University of Sydney in 1982. Written clearly and concisely, this book provides adequate information on brand name drugs as well as generic names of medication, side effects, what the medication is used to treat, dosage, precautions, complications, whether it is a prescription medication, how it is taken; and includes the effects substances such as alcohol or tobacco have on the medication. - Nadine (QBD)
