Downloading one of our drug reports is easy. So is reading one, either online or printed out. We urge you to print so you can show and discuss them with your doctor.
Our reports don't stint on the details you need, they are written for you, the consumer.
The reports are in what is called "PDF" format. You'll need the software to open them on your computer and to print them out. This software can be easily downloaded by clicking here
Our reports compare prescription drugs by category—that is, drugs in the same class that are used to treat a specific condition or illness, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, allergies, coronary-artery disease, heartburn, or depression. They combine an expert review of the scientific evidence with pricing information.
Note that you can download summaries of our reports, too. These handy 2-page summaries are available in English and Spanish. Our newest reports may not yet have a 2-page summary since there is usually a lag between the posting of a full report and our preparation of the summary.
