Prescription Alternatives is a layperson's crash course in prescription drugs and alternative treatments, such as dietary changes and nutritional supplements. Mindell covers drug interactions, how to read labels and inserts, and how to avoid abuse. He discusses prescription drugs and alternative treatments in detail for heart disease, digestive diseases, respiratory illnesses, pain relief, infections, sleep disorders, depression, diabetes, eye diseases, prostate enlargement, hormone replacement, osteoporosis, and herpes. This is information you won't get from your HMO--and in this case, what you don't know can hurt you. --Joan Price
