ENCORE: Balancing Drug Risks and Benefits, Part 1

Suzanne weighs in on the pros and cons of the HPV vaccine; drawbacks of the popular asthma drug Advair; unnecessary and potentially dangerous medical tests; how to properly research drug side effects; food as medicine; medical marijuana; and the Choose Wisely Campaign which aims to enlist the public in curtailing useless or obsolete medical interventions.

Drug Interactions and Side Effects, Part 1
October 12, 2017
Studies show that 1.5 million Americans are hurt each year by preventable medicine errors. Many people are unaware that over-the-counter (OTC) analgesics can cause potentially serious adverse effects when used in combination with other common medications. Robert Baker realized there was a problem with people obtaining overall drug information after conducting extensive research. As a pharmacist, Robert has had extensive patient interaction for over the last 30 years. This gave him great insight into what patients need to have – useful at hand knowledge of their medications. Some of the more important issues patients stressed were over-the-counter (OTC) interactions with their current medications, as well as interactions among their prescription medications. The result is MyRxProfile, a convenient patient-friendly app that can help consumers be forewarned about potential drug interactions and side effects. Available from Apple and Android app stores, the app draws on a database of over 30,000 common prescription and over-the-counter medications. Click HERE for part 2.
