ENCORE: Drug Interactions and Side Effects, Part 1
October 15, 2019
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.

The Deceit Behind Generic-Drug Manufacturing, Part 1
August 29, 2019
Few realize that generic (copy-cat) drugs comprise nearly 90% of the drug supply in the U.S.; they seem like a reasonable, cost-effective alternative to astronomically-priced brand name drugs, but generics are often made under poorly-regulated conditions in India and China. And even if you take brand name drugs, their ingredients are likely to originate overseas. Virtually all antibiotics taken in the U.S. are made offshore. In "Bottle of Lies: The Inside Story of the Generic Drug Boom," investigative journalist Katherine Eban blows the lid off the generic drug industry. How did we become so dependent on foreign manufacturers? How do unscrupulous non-U.S. companies cut corners on quality? What tricks do they employ to deceive inspectors? How can drug adulteration literally threaten your life? What’s the government doing about it? She offers advice to consumers on her website https://www.katherineeban.com/. Click HERE for part 2.
