Prescription drugs that is.
The current health care debate has caused me and many others to take an increased interest in the status of health care in the US.
During some of my research I came across the following information. "The first line of defense in health care is usually prescription drugs. Research has shown that 90% of prescription drugs work for less than 50% of the intended population".
In other words, 9 out of 10 prescription drugs work less than half the time!!!
This leads to the conclusion that we could save a large amount of the money we now spend on health care if we knew what worked for each individual.
OK! I will now throw this open to discussion. First I would like to know if any of you have had medicine prescribed for you that didn't work?
Did your Doctor look to see what meds had been prescribed for you in the past?
Are you one of those RARE INDIVIDUALS that experenced "Side Effects"
Are your medical records accessible when you travel?
