Editorial Policy

Our goal is to bring you current, accurate, and helpful information about drugs, herbal medicines and supplements, as well as common diseases and conditions.

The drug information on PDRhealth is written in lay terms and is based on the FDA-approved drug information found in the PDR or from manufacturers. It gives consumers plain-English explanations for the safe and effective use of prescription and nonprescription drugs—explanations that are consistent with the information professionals reference in the PDR.

The disease and condition information covers the most common ailments one is likely to encounter. The articles, which are written and reviewed by physicians and other clinical professionals, aim to give you a comprehensive overview of the conditions—from symptoms to diagnosis and even self-care.

While great care has been taken in organizing and presenting the material on PDRhealth, please note that information on a web site should never be substituted for the advice of your doctor or other health professional.
