Webmd.com Health

I see Webmd.com advertised all the time on TV. The information on Webmd.com is heavily funded by the pharmaceutical companies. That is why it is advertised so much. The people in the commercials look so happy as they are typing in information into Webmd just like the other drug commercials where people are dancing through meadows and smiling. When typing in information regarding different disease states and other medical problems the information that comes up is geared to medications that the drug companies manufacture. Information regarding dangerous drug side effects on Webmd.com is downplayed and minimized to an extent that makes it seem like it could never even occur.

When I typed in Levaquin it said that side effects of this medication are rare. It also made no mention of the potential for irreversible pain and irreversible neurological damage. This information is stated in the package insert for Levaquin. Why would it not be in Webmd.com?  Again, It’s because Webmd.com is heavily funded by the pharmaceutical companies. The website information is an effort to mislead the public into thinking that pharmaceutical drugs are the answer to most chronic health situations and that medication side effects are relatively rare. This is yet another injustice to the public by not providing accurate health information. 

I think the best health information comes from sites like Askapatient.com  You can type in any drug and there is usually a very long list of people who have documented their experience with a particular medication. Real life documentation from real people is more accurate data. Type in Levaquin into Askapatient.com and the information in this website is far different than what’s in Webmd.com  Drug companies have an inherent bias when it comes to reporting the safety of their medications. They are corporations that have an obligation to maximize shareholder profits just like Ford, IBM, Walmart and other companies. Unfortunately, shareholder wealth takes precedence over accurate health information.

Please educate others on the crippling and often permanent damage caused by Levaquin and other quinolone antibiotics. The life you save could be someone in your own family.
