Our most recent Hot Topic focuses on the process by which prescription drugs are switched to over-the-counter status by the Food and Drug Administration.  The impetus for this page was a recent decision by the FDA not to switch two cholesterol-lowering drugs to OTC status.  Click on  Switching from Prescription to OTC  to read about it.

Another Hot Topic page discusses little known programs, administered by drug companies, that are designed to assist patients with their medication bills.  Click on Low Cost Prescription Drugs to read about it. 

We will be adding pages as new Hot Topics come to our attention.  Please check back to see what's new.
