The well-respected consumer product authority, Consumer Reports, has started reviewing medications as well.
Their free Web site compares medications in terms of price, effectiveness, and safety.
In an effort to aid consumers in a world where new medications are popping up every day to help cure what ails you, the Consumer Reports Best Buy Drugs web site starts with 3 main drug categories:
1. Cholesterol-lowering statins
2. Proton pump inhibitors for heartburn and acid reflux
3. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) for arthritis and pain.
There will eventually be 20 different categories of medications covered there.
Here’s more background info about the Consumer Reports Best Buy Drugs site.
I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” ideas that most wouldn’t think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about. I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV. You can always find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
