ALWAYS seek the NEWEST! EDITION- check carefully

Customer review by abearwhocares

5.0 stars by abearwhocares

THE PILL BOOK is updated every- two- years as so many new medicines hit the market. don't get stuck with an old edition with missing info, Available here is the 15th edition printed April 2012- already out of date-[but ALL that is available right now]- look for the April , 2014 edition #16[ available at as PRE ORDER @ $6.51 but not due out til Feb 2015!]. next will be April 2016- I assume unless they update faster-- newer editions still have all the previous pills listed unless they have been pulled off market I suppose. A necessity if you have family/elderly who have multiple meds prescribed. two years ago this book was $4.99 now already $8.09 for outdated edition #15. Even outdated it is a valuable tool to have as this book is hard to locate. Makes a thoughtful gift for family or friend!

this is a must have book!

Customer review by cntrynana

5.0 stars by cntrynana

Must have this book if you're going to be proactive with your health. I have used these books for years and it was time to update. After a few years you start seeing medicines that aren't listed in the old one, so I get the new one every few years. It tells you everything you need to know about the medicines that the doctor will prescribe for you, and some over the counter medicines. Great book for a great price!

This book is getting hard to find in stores. Used to be available in drug stores. Not anymore. It's a great have on hand resource guide for quick check of prescription drugs, their possible side effects and any precautions when using with other drugs, etc.
