However, we do use some very important tools when we research medical studies. The primary tool is the NIH’s (National Institute of Health) website […]

Off-label drug use – Pharmaceuticals vs. Homeopathic Drugs

“Off-label use” can apply to both prescription and over-the-counter (non-prescription) drugs.  This occurs when a drug, generally a prescription drug, is used in ways not specified on the label: for an unapproved use (indication); or an unapproved dosage; or an unapproved age group; or even an unapproved method of application.
