A companion volume to the "Concise Medical Dictionary", this new dictionary is a source of reference on the wide range of medicines available today. It contains 5000 entries and covers a full range of over-the-counter, pharmacy, and prescription medicines. As well as meeting the increasing demands of patients and their families for information about medicines and their effects, this dictionary is also an aid for paramedical workers and medical students. There are entries for classes of drugs (eg antibiotics), generic names (eg ibuprofen), and proprietary names (eg Prozac, Arthrotec), with information on side-effects and interactions with other medicines.
