This is good.
Here’s a new website that Prof David Healy’s involved with. RxISK is a free, independent drug safety website where you can research a prescription drug to see what side effects have been reported and also share your experience and get a free RxISK Report to take to your doctor if need be.
This from RxISK:
A Good Drug is a chemical + Good Information. Most of the information on what drugs actually do is missing. Only you can provide it. Using RxISK will tell you more about the drugs you are prescribed than anything else will. By reporting to RxISK you can help make Good Drugs. Less than 5% of drug side effects are reported. Your voice has been silenced – globally.
Little is known about the effects of drugs on our hair, sex and relationships, violent and other extreme acts or thoughts, and our skin and nails, because these effects are not considered medically significant and are not tracked.
We have created the RxISK Zones with two purposes in mind:
- To enable you to easily search for prescription drug side effects on hair, sex, violence, suicide, and other aspects of our every day lives in the more than three million adverse drug event reports filed with the FDA since 2004, as well as our expanding RxISK database.
- To make it even easier for you to report these types of prescription drug side effects on RxISK.org and with your country’s drug regulator or the FDA if we don’t yet have your country’s form.
Just imagine — by reporting your experiences, you can help make RxISK the most comprehensive source of independent information on drug side effects in these important personal areas.
How it works
At the bottom of any Zone page, simply enter a prescription drug and click Continue. On the following summary page, check the box next to any side effect you are experiencing, and click the Report a drug side effect button to quickly create your personalized RxISK Report with your RxISK Score to take to your health care professional to help them help you.
The page is here if you want to add to the real world knowledge available about the drugs you take.
