Did you know… The leading drug problem in the U.S. today is not the use of illegal drugs-it is the use of legal drugs. The fourth leading cause of death in the U.S. is properly prescribed and administered medication. By adding improperly prescribed medication to that equation, it becomes the third leading cause of death. There are over 2 million hospital admissions and 180,000 deaths each and every year in the U.S. due solely to adverse drug reactions When the FDA approves a medication for use by the general public, less than half of the serious drug reactions are known. You-the patient-become the final clinical trial.

If you aren't aware of these facts, and you don't have the tools and information to counter them, you are at risk.

Experienced family doctor Ray Strand writes his patients prescriptions every week, but he also believes that prescribing drugs should be a last resort in most medical cases-not a first choice. In Death by Prescription he provides simple guidelines to help readers protect themselves and their families from suffering adverse reactions to prescription medication.
