This news didn't surprise me at all. There is no one size fits all for nutrients, as the new field of nutrigenomics is demonstrating. I got into a bad state from overdoing the B12. My father may ha...

I can't answer for Guardian but my own condition is somewhat similar. When you're doing fairly well then you probably don't have bad inflammation, so therefore your risks of colon cancer aren't quite ...

It's very closed minded to be anti all drugs. It's like refusing to drive or ride in a car because you could die in a car accident, refusing to drink tap water because tap water is polluted, wearing a...

Except it's not a complex issue because there is a clear causation between pharmaceutical drug use and death. There still isn't a viable counter-argument to the data. I posted data from the ISMP commi...

Guardian7, sounds like we are not that far apart, I am for getting nutrients from diet when possible, otherwise use supplements. I'm not against supplements, I recommend them when it makes sense, but...


Additional Drug Information


* Warning: The facts and figures contained in these reports are accurate to the best of our capability; however, our metrics are only meant to augment your medical knowledge, and should never be used as the sole basis for selecting a new medication. As with any medical decision, be sure to work with your doctor to ensure the best choices are made for your condition.

* About FAERS: The FDA Adverse Event Reporting System (FAERS) is used by FDA for activities such as looking for new safety concerns that might be related to a marketed product, evaluating a manufacturer's compliance to reporting regulations and responding to outside requests for information. Reporting of adverse events is a voluntary process, and not every report is sent to FDA and entered into FAERS. The FAERS database may contain duplicate reports, the report quality is variable, and many factors may influence reporting (e.g., media attention, length of time a drug is marketed, market share). For these reasons, FAERS case reports cannot be used to calculate incidence or estimates of risk for a particular product or compare risks between products.
