MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

Many women of child-bearing age buy over-the-counter medications for a variety of disorders, such as seasonal allergies and asthma; colds, cough and flu; constipation; diarrhoea; heartburn; motion sickness; headaches; and difficulty sleeping. They want to know if these non-prescription drugs are safe for unborn babies. This book helps answer that question for consumers, and for doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and students as well. All non-prescription drugs contain one or more active ingredients that treat the patient's symptoms and are actually drugs themselves. FDA-approved prescription drugs are assigned a Pregnancy Risk Category: A, B, C, D, or X. When these drugs switch from prescription to non-prescription or over-the-counter status, their Pregnancy Risk Categories still applied. If the drug you are looking for isn't in the book, you can look up the active ingredients separately in the extensive list of active ingredients located in a separate section of the book.
