Every drug includes how supplied, action, contraindications, indications and dosages, interactions, adverse reactions, overdose and treatment nursing considerations, and patient teaching. Teaching guides instruct patients on administering OTC drugs. Pediatric and geriatric issues are addressed, and an Alert logo accentuates serious dangers of OTC drug use. Supplemental appendices and an index are included.
