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.
Professionally, I pursued my Masters Degree in Family Therapy at Texas Tech — where I obtained invaluable expertise and experience helping people with a wide variety of physical and emotional health issues. Personally, I think it's useful when people realize that they're not the only one going through a difficult time. So any time that I think my personal health experiences would be helpful to someone else going through the same thing, I will share my story here. With health issues that I've personally experienced (like Endometriosis, Lyme Disease, Hysterectomy, Skin Cancer, Ganglion Cysts, Autism, and other topics that very few people enjoy talking about) and health products that I've found beneficial (like sleep aids, essential oils, and medications)… I do my best to provide my own raw and honest firsthand experiences that I think others would appreciate hearing about and (hopefully) find helpful. I'm grateful that I have a number of friends who have also been willing to share their very personal stories here — regarding their own physical and emotional health. When I'm not writing about health topics, you will find me sharing Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
