This great place is sponsored by the non-profit MedSh'adow Foundation and is an on-line resource that helps patients to be proactive about their medications and to check on side effects of the medications prescribed to them. This gives users the opportunity to ask their health professionals deeper+ questions regarding the pros and cons of specific prescription drugs, and, if appropriate, explore other options such as alternative treatments or behavioral changes.

The Foundation recognizes that medications save lives and that many are necessary in treating chronic illnesses and in managing life-and-death situations. They also point out that some medications are sometimes over-prescribed. Their goal is to help patients to do a risk/benefit analysis of the medications they are prescribed and take a proactive role in their own health.

Nice people.

This may be a completely legitimate place belonging to a reputable company that needs to shorten a very lengthy URL for convenience. On the other hand it may be some rascal trying to get into your wallet.

This great service determines the actual web site to which you will be redirected then uses data from Google's Safe Browsing service to indicate if the web site is safe to visit. The service checks the URL entered against the list of all web sites containing malware and phishing sites.

These people are lookin' out for you!
