Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really useful I find this book great simply because it breaks down every pill my husband and myself take in understandable terms. It tells you why you are taking this particular pill you are on what it does. It gives a comprehensive list of side effects and what not to do while on them. A fantastic book.
