Medication Description Site

One of the best sites I have found about a large number of medications including anti-depressants, mood stabilizers, anti-psychotics and every other kind of med you can think of is as follows:

http://www.rxlist.com/

It gives a very complete and understandable review of the med including doseage, purpose, warnings, side-effects, and patient information.

Just thought it might be helpful.

Re: Medication Description Site (and references)

Here are some helpful hints those of us who may be concerned about flight travel in the future. It's from schizophrenia.com but it's a good site for a lot of different types of conditions. Basically, tell your health care provider/therapist well ahead of time when you are going to fly and discuss concerns with her or with him. Also, take plenty of prescription medication (and I would add, make sure you are caught up with your meds the day you fly).

Anyone who is considering of going on meds or are on meds, really need to research natural methods first...I had almost every label in the book as well as drug addiction, and I turned it all around by seeing a naturopath, and doing cleanses that took care of candida/parasites/heavy metals.....A good multi vitamin, digstive enzymes, probiotics,liver support....cutting out gluten, dairy and sugar.....I know it sounds silly, but really it works! Anyone considering meds or on meds, go research candida and parasites and heavy metals....Cleansing all those things out can make a huge difference, in combo with the food changes and supplements....If you research all these things and experiment or see a naturopath, you will learn like I did, that most things can be turned around naturally. It takes a lot of education, and persistance...but it is worth it for your health!

I prefer to use drugs.com as my reference and check/indicator for all meds. I take about 30+ tablets a day until recently and it's been a great source of information.
