Did You Know?
More than 1,500 legal prescription drugs have been shown by studies to be highly effective for uses not yet approved by the FDA.
One out of four prescriptions written today is for an alternative use of an FDA-approved drug.
Off-label prescriptions -- as new uses for FDA-approved drugs are called -- are completely legal alternatives used by doctors on the cutting edge to treat illnesses and symptoms that do not respond to traditional therapy. But patients need to know what is available and safe in order to speak with their doctors about their health care needs.
This one-of-a-kind volume, compiled by a team of leading medical experts, reveals all the off-label drugs that may better treat your condition. Arranged alphabetically by both conditions and drugs for easy reference, this is the one book every informed patient should own.
