Prescription Drugs and the Drug Industry
(1/12/17)- We at therubins received the following email from Emma Larson of Community Outreach, and took the opportunity to view the site that she wrote about. The site deals with the possible negative side effects that can occur from taking different medications. We found the site to be easy to navigate and extremely informative. We want to thank Emma for having taken the time to email us so that we in turn have posted it to this site.
In 2013, the Mayo Clinic found that nearly 70 percent of Americans take at least one prescription drug each month. The majority of medications are safe for consumption, but we believe in educating the public about thousands of prescription and over-the-counter medications, many of which have the potential to cause serious side effects. Our easy to navigate online database is constantly being updated with drug recall news, and provides comprehensive, unbiased information about serious side effects, complications, and interactions of commonly prescribed drugs.
RxDangers.com aims to be your trusted resource, educating the public about all defective medical devices and dangerous medications that are available on the market today. For more information please visit www.rxdangers.com.
Please let me know if this is something that you can help us with!
