Nowadays, you can’t seem to avoid pharmaceutical advertising. During your favorite evening television show, you’re bound to see commercials for medical remedies to treat high cholesterol, depression, or other afflictions. If you find yourself having a difficult time keeping them all straight—or you’re curious to learn more about other drugs that aren’t found on primetime—then make an appointment with RxList. RxList is a comprehensive online drug index that provides a great deal of information about each entry. We’re not just talking about superficial details like name and function—here you’ll find chemical structures, biological mechanisms of action, dosage recommendations, and other information. There is a great deal of information beyond the medical and scientific terminology such as the slideshow series that covers topics as multifaceted as cosmetic surgery and black widow spider bites.
