About this work


"Drugs used primarily or exclusively by women are plainly visible, but it is a bewildering, if not impossible, task for most people to keep up with currently available agents for menstrual irregularities, menopausal changes, sexually transmitted infections, infertility, personal hygiene, and treatment during pregnancy [...] Clearly, there is a need for an authoritative reference for women - one written in an easy-to-understand manner. Every Woman's Pharmacy: a Guide to Safe Drug Use was written specifically for this purpose, so that the inquiring reader may become more aware of widely available and frequently prescribed medications - their active ingredients, standard dosages, side effects, hazards, and benefits - and to be better informed in choosing nonprescription drugs."--From Preface.


St. Louis : The C.V. Mosby Company, 1983.
