No Milligram Dosage Information George Mosby Not all that pleased with this book. It has discussions of most drugs in common use but does not discuss dosages at all. Information on dosages was one of my reasons for wanting a new reference book on medications. Why this is omitted is unclear. It has a section for each medication with "dosage" in the title, but it provides no information on actual milligrams recommended, just says . "Big disappointment" according to Michelle B.. I expected to get a book that had a complete listing of all drugs from A-Z, with a normal index with additional info. This book makes it very difficult to look up an RX drug. They list the drugs in a funky category & if you don't know what type/classification it is, Well then. GOOD LUCK FINDING WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR. THIS WAS A TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY.. "Very good reference." according to J. Culby. I wanted the newer version of this book, because there are so many new medications out today. For any household/family that has complicated health issues, can't imagine living without this. Very good reference.
