Summary

The People's Guide to Deadly Drug Interactions cuts through drug company fine print to focus on the interactions that are the most deadly and that involve the remedies you're most likely to take. It organizes the thousands of hazardous combinations into easy-to-read, easy-to-understand Interaction Charts. Printed in three colors, these unique charts clearly show whether a drug combo may be life-threatening, dangerous, or troublesome - and, most important, describe the symptoms of those interactions. Unlike other drug references, The People's Guide to Deadly Drug Interactions pulls out the critical information buried in technical drug literature and highlights it in dozens of at-a-glance charts and tables.
