Consumer Reports Best Buy Drugs is a public-education project administered by Consumers Reports. 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.

The Engelberg Foundation provided a major grant to fund the creation of the project from 2004 to 2007. Additional initial funding came from the National Library of Medicine, part of the National Institutes of Health. A more detailed explanation of the project is available at ConsumerReportsHealth.org/BestBuyDrugs.

Consumer Reports Best Buy Drugs should not be viewed as a substitute for a consultation with a medical or health professional. These guides and the information on ConsumerReportsHealth.org/BestBuyDrugs are provided to enhance the communication with your doctor rather than to replace it.
