Over half of all Canadians take at least one prescription drug, but most of us know very little about the medication we’re taking, including why we’ve been prescribed anything in the first place. Understanding Prescription Drugs For Canadians For Dummies will answer many of the questions Canadians have about prescription drugs, but were afraid ask our doctors and pharmacists.

Topics covered include:
  • What a prescription drug is
  • Ailments A-Z and their treatment
  • Medications A-Z and their treatment
  • Common concerns
  • Side effects
  • Prescribing practices
Understanding Prescription Drugs For Canadians For Dummies will go beyond the encyclopedic and often overwhelming information offered in massive pill books on the Web. It will empower readers, providing them with the knowledge they need as responsible consumers. Includes drug and general indexes.

Dr. Ian Blumer is an internal medicine specialist and is the co-author of Diabetes For Canadians For Dummies. Dr. Heather McDonald-Blumer is a member of the Division of Rheumatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto.
