Includes bibliographical references and index



The authors of the second edition of this book have updated all the references to drugs, adding those which have appeared since the last edition. It also takes account of changes in the NHS whereby some drugs are no longer prescribable and others have changed from the prescription-only category to become available for pharmacy sale. There are seven new sections - premenstrual syndrome, vaginal thrush, menopausal problems, cold sores/shingles, motion sickness, sunburn and insect bites.
