Symptoms in the Pharmacy Reviews

Treatment management information includes example of medication linked to each symptom and this information could be particularly useful for young pharmacists wishing to build up suitable formulary when dealing with requests for advice.; The book is an extremely valuable tool for practising community pharmacists and should sit comfortably beside the standard textbook in any community pharmacy. Elizabeth Roddick in The Pharmaceutical Journal (on the 2nd edition); Regular readers of the journals continuing education section will be acquainted with the articles by Alison Blenkinsopp and other contributors on response to symptoms and will know the sound information they contain and the clarity of their presentation. This book co-written with Paul Paxton, a General Practitioner, brings together similar material but augments it and consequently improves even on their high standards. Responding to symptoms is contributing increasingly to the community pharmacists role and income, and this book is a valuable aid to performing the task competently and well. Alan Nathan in The Pharmaceutical Journal (on the 1st edition). Overall, I found this book to be interesting and useful. It would make an excellent companion to the Handbook of Non Prescription Drugs, which is now so large as to be unwieldy for quick reference. I would recommend Symptoms in the Pharmacy for pharmacy libraries and all who teach courses on OTC drugs or ambulatory care clerkships. Donald R Miller in the American Journal of Pharmaceutical Education(on the 1st edition).
