When you are prescribed a medication from the doctor, do you trust your doctor and take it or do you research for any further information on the medication?
With a lot of medicines being pulled off the shelf because they turn out to harm people, a lot of people are starting to do further research when they receive a certain medication. When I went to a convention in Philadelphia, I learned that sometimes it doesn't take much for FDA to approve a new drug.
What do you do?
I've always preferred home remedies over pills... but sometimes, you have to take the pills... it's been a year since I have always done research after getting a medication prescribed.... there have been times when I have chosen not to take the pill because of what I have found online.

I put no since i usually don't take any medecine at all... Luckily I've been healthy all my life.
But even if i had to take any kind of medication i wouldn't do research on it. maybe I'm to trusting but i didn't even think of it...

I wasn't exactly sure how the voting was supposed to be (Yes, you trust your doctor, or yes, you do research), but I voted yes as in I do research online to see what the med is all about, and if there are interactions with other drugs since I see more than one doctor. I also get all my scripts filled at the same drug store so they can point out if something new is going to interfere with something old.

I really can't say yes or no because it depends on the doctor. My dad is my dentist and I trust him with anything he gives me. I also completely trust my doctor that gives me my depession and anxiety medicine. Any other doctor I always call my doc that gives me the two meds. He used to be a pharmacist before becoming a doctor and studies the way medicines interact before giving them to patients. He always keep things just right. I have been going to him since 2004 and I have not had a problem yet. Before him I did have problems with other doctors.

Not really. I wouldn't let my doctor put me on anything in less I knew it was ok. Like a new drug I won't take it. I also would refuse to be put on steriods or narcs.
