Drug safety and money saving guides

Published: July 2014

This series will help you navigate the world of drugs - to save money when you buy them, to talk to your doctor about your treatment options and choices, and to take drugs more safely and wisely. These brief guides present simple and straight-forward explanations, advice, and recommendations. 

Our guides are listed below. They are available in English and Spanish. They are in PDF format so you'll need Adobe Acrobat software on your computer. Just click on the title to download a guide. 

The publications in this series are not a substitute for a consultation with a medical or health professional. They are meant to promote and enhance communication with your doctors and pharmacists, not replace it. 

Editor's Note:

These materials were made possible from a grant from the state Attorney General Consumer and Prescriber Education Grant Program, which is funded by a multistate settlement of consumer-fraud claims regarding the marketing of the prescription drug Neurontin.
