Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Ask Your Pharmacist: A Leading Pharmacist Answers Your Most Frequently Asked Questions grew out of pharmacist Lisa Chavis's eponymous column, as well as her work as an interactive pharmacist for drugstore.com. Chavis offers alternative, over-the-counter and prescriptive drug treatments for minor complaints aches, pains, strains. (Her mentions of brand names reflect personal experience and not corporate endorsement, she carefully notes.) This book may be most useful for addressing the sorts of embarrassing matters that, even in this confessional age, we'd rather not discuss face to face: constipation, crab lice, diarrhea, excessive sweating, etc. Agent, Sheryl Fullerton.

From Library Journal

Registered pharmacist and syndicated columnist Chavis answers the most common questions a retail pharmacist receives. With the exception of certain conditions that require immediate medical attention, the "drug lady" usually suggests nondrug treatments and natural remedies as the first step. She may then recommend specific over-the-counter remedies and, if those do not work, prescription drugs. In certain cases, she recommends specific brands (e.g., "Viactiv are a yummy way to get 500 mg. of calcium"). The work also includes what to put in a first-aid kit and resources for further information. Although a lot of the information is available in other sources, this book is written in a practical and amusing way (the organization Lip Balm Anonymous actually exists) and does not have so much information that the reader gets lost. Highly recommended for consumer health collections. Natalie Kupferberg, Biological Sciences/Pharmacy Lib., Ohio State Univ., Columbus

Format: Paperback
I started out looking up topics in this handy book by Lisa Chavis, and found myself reading page after page. Not only are there ideas and recommendations for the most common (and most aggravating) everyday health problems in here, but there is a refreshingly cheerful look at pharmacists, doctors and consumers as well. The authors never talks down to the reader and seems to anticipate the questions that come up in the reading. The Humor Pills are delightful additions to rather than distractions from the content. I learned some things and had a good time doing it!

This is a great book for people who can't decide what to take for a stuffy nose, cough, constipation, headaches, etc. This book offers good recommendations for over the counter medications as well as alternative remedies for everyday ailments. I highly recommend this to anyone!
