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.
