Dr. Sharon Orrange - June 29, 2015

The most expensive prescriptions are usually the best, right?

That’s what many people think, but it isn’t always the case—not even close. There are many inexpensive drugs out there that work just as well for treating everything from arthritis to depression, and some even have fewer side effects than their high-cost counterparts.

Dr. Sharon Orrange - November 19, 2013

Can Your Cholesterol Medication Cause a Fuzzy Head?

Dr. Sharon Orrange - March 20, 2012

For years, many of you taking statins to lower your cholesterol have complained of a fuzzy head and less clear thinking. Statins are among the most prescribed medications in the US, including simvastatin (Zocor), atorvastatin (Lipitor), pravastatin (Pravachol), and Crestor (rosuvastatin).

While studies have not shown statins to cause memory impairment, the FDA decided to listen to patients and add a warning on the label of statin drugs. See More
