Pharmacology Sites
  • There are almost as many pharmacology pages out there as there are medications. Here is one from the federal government that covers drugs approved since 1998: http://www.fda.gov/cder/consumerinfo/ and its partner (which will soon become the main site): http://www.fda.gov/cder/drug/DrugSafety/DrugIndex.htm

  • Or visit here - Oregons Practitioner-Managed Prescription Drug Plan Evidence-Based Reports. Designed by Oregon to provide its citizens with information on about a dozen of the major classes of drugs, i.e., NSAIDs, beta blockers. You can read either the 1 page summaries or the whole report:
    http://www.oregon.gov/DAS/OHPPR/ORRX/HRC/evidence_based_reports.shtml

  • NeedyMeds - an information clearinghouse for programs and giveaways to help patients who can not afford the meds they need. Find the name of the prescription drug and this page will tell you whether there is a discount, rebate or giveaway.  On-line use is free. A hard-copy can be purchased: http://www.needymeds.com/

  • See also: http://www.medbank.org/ This group only works in Georgia but they might have ideas about finding aid in other states.
