About Meridith Berk

Meridith Berk has been writing about prescription drug problems for the last several years. Her purpose is to give patients and caregivers accurate and understandable information about the pharmaceutical products they buy. Her point of view is, “If an individual is not given all the information in a form that is clear and comprehensible how can they possibly decide for themselves whether the benefit of taking a particular medication is worth the risks?”

Through her research Meridith found that even the most educated patient frequently has no idea of the potential side effects of the medications they have been prescribed. Though by law when a pharmaceutical company advertises a drug they must give space and time to side effects and warnings this is done is such a way as to hide these behind pretty images and confusing language.

With all the information in hand patients can work far better with their doctors to get only the medications they actually need avoiding those where the risk outweighs the potential benefit.
