I live in Milwaukee and I take several medications to manage my health. Is it valuable for me to do a web search about potential side effects for the medications I take, or any new ones my doctor suggests, or should I just take what the doctor tells me to take?

While you should follow your doctor’s directions and never start or stop a medication without the advice of a licensed physician, there may still be benefits to conducting your own web search. The main purpose of the web search is to give you the information that you need to have an informed conversation with a doctor whom you trust.

Researchers recently found that Internet searches performed by patients can be valuable in figuring out potentially dangerous interactions between different drugs. Drug interactions can be difficult for an individual doctor to determine. However, when many patients search for or ask the same questions, more accurate information could be obtained. Of course, there are potential problems with this method of data collection and other, more traditional, studies and surveys must also be used.

The side effects of or interactions between prescription drugs can be significant and may result in serious medical problems or death. If you have been hurt—or your loved one has been killed—as a result of a taking a prescription drug, then it is important to understand your legal rights and possible recovery.
