Reviews about The pill book: The illustrated guide to the most prescribed drugs in the United States (7):

I have been buying this book via local bookstores since 2007; I trust this book--and the authors--implicitly, since doctors really don't know the contraindications of the medicines they prescribe--and most pharmacists don't either.

You have to be very proactive and take charge yourself whenever a doctor prescribes medication for you, because no one else is going to check to see if any of it IS contraindicated, and one easy way to do that is by a book such as this. It doesn't just list medicines--it also tells you symptoms, dangers, age groups (newborns to Seniors), dosages, and emergencies should anyone overdose, in addition to other information that really no one else is going to tell you. WELL WORTH THE COST. As drugs come on the market, they update this book every year or so.

Personally I would not be without this book.

I'm not 100% sold on this book, as it is not as comprehensive as it could be. Upon closer examination, it seems that there are a few Rx titles missing from its pages. Also, there is only one section in the center of the book where pictorial representations of the drugs are provided (and these are only the most common types prescribed today). I purchased this for my medical coding classes to help me code prescriptions based on type. For any prescriptions not provided in this reference, the internet is a good source of information regarding drug type and dosage increments for coding assignments.

Is it a good reference for medical coding students? Meh, I can't really say it would be my first choice now that I've looked at it firsthand.

This is a great book ! If you have prescriptions to take it shows what the pill is supposed to look like and the proper dosage and also what the side affects are and what they are used for !

With all the different drugs on the market today and taking into consideration the possibility of drug interactions and side effects, it is vital to stay informed. Recently my wife was prescribed two different medications by her doctor. Taking them together could have been a threat to her life, neither the druggist nor the prescribing doctor warned her about the side effects that would take place if she took both medications within 4 to 6 hours of each other. The Pill book did! GET THIS IN YOUR HOME! Think generics are exactly the same as brand name drugs? Think again!

Bought this for my dad. He's 75 years old, refuses to use the internet and is obsessed with the medication he takes. He loves this. In fact, this is the second book because he wore out the first one.

I had an old version to this and it helped me a lot in the past so I had to get the updated version since there are lots of new medication on the market now. It give the names of the pills, the generic brand name and all the important information on them. For example, if you're on certain medication and you're not suppose to use something else while taking it, It gives you the reason. I was on a medication and It says I couldn't eat grapefruit or drink grapefruit juice, but the information that came with it didn't say why. Since I wanted to know the reason I consulted the pill book and it gave me the reason. this is a great book to have in your home so go ahead and buy it. You wont be sorry.
It’s published in 2010 & I have Meds that are prescribed to me in 2015 that I cannot find because they are more current than this book — I am deeply disturbed that the published date is NOT included in the description— We should get current editors of prescription guides - I am really angry about this !!!
