The Benefits and Risks of Medicines

We’ve all been there before. The doctor prescribes a medicine, or friends recommend a certain product, and the questions start straight away:

Patient Safety has the highest Priority
  • Should I really take the medicine?
  • My doctor said the medicine would be good for me, but how can he be so sure?
  • How are the benefits and risk of a medicine researched?
  • How to put the information in the package insert into perspective?
  • And how to prepare the next visit to the doctor’s?
