Dr. Sharon Orrange -

Benzodiazepines are one of the most commonly taken psychotropic drugs, often used for anxiety. Prolonged use of them is a widespread phenomenon in medical practice, yet it may surprise you to know that these medications are really only meant to be used short term.

There is a silver lining for some of you though—almost 20 currently excluded drugs will be covered in 2018. See More

Twenty-three states and the District of Columbia have now passed medical marijuana laws, and four more have pending legislation to legalize medical marijuana.

Dr. Sharon Orrange -

One in ten visits to a primary care doctor is for fatigue. While certainly not the only cause, your medications can be the culprit for making you sleepy. Here are the players you need to know about.

Dr. Sharon Orrange
Dr. Sharon Orrange -

Memory loss, dementia, and cardiovascular disease prevention are the main reasons many of you wonder if you should be taking gingko (Gingko biloba).

There was hope for years in gingko. It works to improve blood flow through increased release of nitric oxide, and it works as an anti-inflammatory so it was believed to be neuroprotective.

Well, it doesn’t really do what we’d hoped. The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine funded the Gingko Evaluation of Memory (GEM) study, the largest and longest trial done. See More
