FDA Finds New Outlet for Consumer Drug Information

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the website Drugs.com (www.drugs.com) have teamed to broaden the reach of FDA’s consumer health information.

A new partnership forged by the two entities provides consumers with a joint resource on Drugs.com’s site that features FDA Consumer Update articles, videos, and slideshows. It will also bring FDA health information to Drugs.com’s mobile phone platform.

“The partnership with Drugs.com means that reliable, useful, and timely health information will be available to an even wider audience,” says Beth Martino, FDA’s associate commissioner for external affairs. “Partnerships like this are an important part of FDA’s effort to ensure the public has easy access to reliable, useful information that can help people protect and improve their health.”

With more than 12 million unique visitors each month, this terrific site seeks to provide comprehensive drug information online, and to assist in the reduction of medication errors. Featured services include an A-to-Z Drug List, a Pill Identifier (for those stray pills you find in the bottom of your bathroom cabinet), Clinical Trial Results, Pregnancy Warnings, and many more.

Unfortunately, even with the best information, drug injuries can happen. For example, there may be a prescribing error, or a defect in the manufacturing process. If you believe that you have been injured by a prescription or over-the-counter medication, please seek help from a physician.
