Your Essential Guide to Prescription Drugs-visit for news on promising new medicines-drugs for Heart Disease to weight loss and arthritis to stroke--read and listen about FDA approvals and news on medicines that may change your life

Dr. James Joseph Rybacki, Pharm D

Let's make 2015 the year of EXERCISE as a family medicine, healthy eating as a usual choice and population health as a result! Try to avoid becoming a patient...LIFE CHANGES—if you become a PATIENT and life becomes a jungle of prescription medicines, medical tests while wondering about safety, side effects, costs and FDA recalls.

More than 100,000 people die EVERY YEAR from misusing medicines or from the medicines themselves? Startling. Here you'll find objective news, latest treatments, stroke and heart attack recovery options and the essential, yet ever changing world of prescription drugs! Almost every day there is breaking FDA news about another approval or problem.

I'm Dr. James Rybacki, and I've written Medicines and Your Family and more than a decade of editions of The Essential Guide to Medical News and The Essential Guide to Prescription Drugs to help keep you and your family safe! To keep current, visit my new Amazon author page where you get a check up for your medicines via electronic versions of my books. You don't even need a Kindle...just download the free reader. Don't settle for that one-page, small-print blurb from the drug store--click the amazon link to visit the books and newsletters that have the information you and your family deserve: https://www.amazon.com/author/jamesrybacki

Our new Essential Guide to Prescription Drugs, Update on Alcohol is now available exclusively on Amazon.

Remember--the best colleague any clinician can have is a more fully informed patient and family. Take control of your health and put the best medicines to work. Talk to your doctor, pharmacist and nurse to know when your medicines (prescription, supplements, nutritional and exercise) should start to help and set a target date to revisit treatment if the goal still escapes you. Always understand the balance of benefits and risks of treatments and "take care of yourself".
