then there is a Quick Reference containing pharmacological groups, overdose danger and dependence; and the status of a doctor's prescription or over-the-counter. Then, there is a brief explanation of General Information, information on how to use, frequency of use and dosage, onset, duration, dietary advice, storage, records of missed doses, stopping drugs and excess drugs, possible adverse effects, interactions, special precautions and prolonged use. The length of exposure of each drug is about 1 page.

In the "Drug finder and index" section, a brief description of the drug is listed along with the destination page.

The language in this book is concise and simple, so estimated that it will be easily understood by people who do not have a medical or pharmaceutical background. Even though there is a statement on the cover of the book that this book is a reference to more than 3000 prescription and over-the-counter medicines, however, not all drugs are discussed in detail, some are included as part of the pharmacological group.
