At A Glance

The Handbook of Nonprescription Drugs Quick Reference, 2nd Edition, provides a succinct summary of the most common self-care conditions for which community pharmacists provide treatment recommendations. It presents the most essential information that is needed in the OTC aisle to assess if patients are candidates for self-care. Appropriate treatment recommendations are also indicated based on the patient's presentation, current medications, and chronic conditions.

As a practical tool to improve practitioner or student pharmacist assessment of patients seeking self-treatment strategies in the community pharmacy setting, the Handbook of Nonprescription Drugs Quick Reference is a user-friendly and complementary supplement to the Handbook of Nonprescription Drugs. The chapters are presented in the QuEST SCHOLAR-MAC format, providing a standardized process to help student pharmacists and practitioners quickly assess and treat their patients in the community pharmacy.

  • Emphasizes specific nonprescription interventions
  • Provides key drug information about nonprescription medicines by condition noting certain medications and disease states which may limit treatment options
  • Contains only necessary and most-essential information for practice
  • Highly readable and jargon-free for use in the OTC aisle
