7 Common Myths About Atorvastatin

Dr. Sharon Orrange - February 28, 2018

Atorvastatin (Lipitor), always on the top ten most commonly prescribed drugs, is used to lower cholesterol and often gets a bad rap.

Muscle pain and cramps, diarrhea, and stomach upset are adverse reactions known to occur with atorvastatin and those deserve attention for sure. But, studies suggest that only around 50% of patients who receive a prescription for a cholesterol-lowering drug continue to take the medication 6 months later. See More

Tori Marsh - February 27, 2018

It’s true: Drugs really are getting more expensive.

According to a new GoodRx analysis, the average list price for the top 100 prescription drugs climbed higher over the past year, even as concerns over high drug prices grow in the U.S.

This Is Why Drug Prices Are Totally Broken

Doug Hirsch - January 12, 2018

Epipens. Sovaldi. Tysabri. Acthar. Harvoni. Every month, it seems, there’s fresh outrage–from president Trump, the Congress, in the media, and among the public–over the soaring cost of prescription drugs.   

With good reason: The cash price for the average brand-name prescription drug has increased 48% since 2013. These increases put desperately needed treatments out of reach for many, and cost taxpayers (via Medicare and Medicaid) billions of dollars more every year. See More

Why Synthroid Is the Most Prescribed Drug in the US

Katie Mui - November 07, 2017

Why is Synthroid (levothyroxine), a medication that treats thyroid hormone deficiencies—or hypothyroidism, as it’s called—the number one drug in terms of the number of prescriptions written by physicians? 

It’s easy to understand why atorvastatin would be on the list. For years, widespread marketing has flooded with TV commercials and website ads for statins as a means (after changes in diet and exercise) to treat high cholesterol. See More

12 Medications to Avoid During Pregnancy

Dr. Sharon Orrange - October 04, 2017

Of the non-genetic causes of birth defects, medications are a well-known offender. Early in the first trimester, many women don’t yet know that they are pregnant. This is a high-risk time to be taking certain medications as this is the major period of organogenesis or development of the organs.

While the science is very limited (pregnant women are generally not included in medication safety studies) there are a handful of medications that are considered category X drugs, or drugs that should not be taken in women who are or may become pregnant. See More

Dr. Sharon Orrange - July 26, 2017

Tinnitus, or ringing in the ears, is a perception of sound in one or both ears in the absence of an external source. It’s often described by patients as buzzing, ringing, or whooshing.

Tinnitus can be a continuous sound or occur intermittently and while there is often no known cause, there are a handful of medications that can contribute. “Ototoxic medications” are those that may damage the inner ear. See More
