An FDA Guide to
Choosing Medical Treatments
by Isadora B. Stehlin
FDA Consumer June 1995
Medical treatments come in many shapes and sizes. There are "home
remedies" shared among families and friends. There are prescription
medicines, available only from a pharmacist, and only when ordered
by a physician. There are over-the-counter drugs that you can buy--
almost anywhere--without a doctor's order. Of growing interest and
attention in recent years are so-called alternative treatments, not yet
approved for sale because they are still undergoing scientific research
to see if they really are safe and effective. And, of course, there are
those "miracle" products sold through "back-of-the-magazine" ads
and TV infomercials.
