Reviews - What do our customers think?
Horror Story!  Mar 21, 2007
When you go to your Doctor, one of three things are for sure. To treat your illness you will either be drugged, or cut, or hospitalized. Never mind Doctors are the 3rd leading cause of death in America (As reported by JAMA) we put a lot of trust in these people.

Most drugs are hostile to the body, and have very negative side effects, and have little more than a placebo effect on what ever your illness happens to be. Akind to going to a doctor with a broken leg, and all he gives you for a treatment is a pair of crutches. This instead of getting to the cause of your hypertension, or diabetes, or heart disease. They throw a bunch of pills at you.

The FDA has the manufacturer's best interests in hand, that is keeping the billions of dollars the snake oil garners each year flowing, regardless of whether it kills you or not. The costs have been weighed, and the patient loses.

This book "Tells It Like It Is", and everyone who takes prescription pills on a regular basis needs to read this book for your own well being.
 
Very informative  Sep 15, 2005
This book was recommended to me by a nurse. I was having terrible side effects to cholesterol medication, and my doctor kept urging me to stay on it, despite the side effects. This book informed me that these side effects were nothing to mess with, and could cause serious harm to my liver and kidneys. I just hope I didn't find out too late. I use people to use this, when a doctor gives you a new drug, or one that doesn't agree with you. I really believe if I hadn't stopped the zocor when I did, I'd be dead.
 
A Balanced Examination of Drug Use  Nov 13, 2003
This is an important book for anyone who takes prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs or herbals. The first part examines the relationship between drug companies and the FDA, which has changed significantly since the early 1990's. Much of the funding for new drug review now comes from the drug manufacturers. The approval process is faster and testing time shorter. The author details how the public increasingly plays a role in "testing" in the form of "post-marketing surveillance" and that the adverse drug reactions encountered are under reported. Marketing includes massive distribution of "free sample" to physicians, many of whom may not be familiar with precautions -- and hence do not alert patients to warning signs and symptoms. Also, advertising of prescription medications has increased greatly in the last few years, which has greatly increased drug use and pressure on physicians to prescribe medications.
Other sections of the books discuss similar concerns with nonprescription medications (many of which recently required prescriptions) and with herbal medications.
The book is "spiced" with case histories that are real page turners. The author has done a real service to the public by describing the scope of the adverse drug reaction problem (#3 killer), and by describing several of the reasons why this has become such an overwhelming concern.
This review is written from the perspective of someone who has been in nursing for over 20 years and who has seen lots of people on lots of medications. The author, a physician, is not suggesting that people stop taking medications that may be important to their health. But he provides guidelines and tools to help individuals evaluate what they need, including the use of a pharmacist and internet resources.
