Speaking of pills

Speaking of pills, a Canadian man was recently convicted of selling fake drugs online to cancer patients. He was tracked by the FBI Cyber Squad and arrested in Germany. He has been sentenced to 33 months in jail. And he will also pay fines and restitution. Are you taking the right medication? Avoid a potentially deadly mistake. (all this info comes from my favorite computer guru, Kim Komando!)

The pill is a modern panacea. Doctors prescribe pills for everything. You can buy them over-the-counter. Most people have a dozen types in their medicine cabinets.

With so many pills in circulation, mistakes are inevitable. Over a million people a year are affected by taking the wrong pill.

MedHelp can alleviate the confusion with Pill Finder. This site lets you find pills by shape, color and markings. Alternately, entering a drug's name will provide pictures of known pills.

All the information about the pill is listed. This includes the dosage and manufacturer. Click on a drug name for a full medical explanation. If you aren't sure about a pill, check this site first.
