I have been employed in the pharmaceutical industry for over ten years and have worked on various stages of the drug pipeline. My work experience covers everything from medical devices such as inhalers to prescription pills. This website is designed to explain the various side effects especially the potentially serious ones from taking prescription medication in layman’s terms.
Too often we go to our doctors or attempt to read the prescription drug inserts but fail since medical terminology can be overwhelming. This site will attempt to simplify the terminology and provide information that is informative and entertaining. In no way is this information used to replace your doctor. As the old proverb goes: knowledge is power. Information is important since it will allow us to make informed decisions about our medical care.
The hope is that you can sit down with your doctor and have a conversation about what prescription medications to use. By knowing the potential side effects, medication can be prescribed to avoid dangerous side effects. Doctors are there to help treat but they also need a little help. Keeping you healthy is a team effort.
