I think that most people would be surprised how often
what you described happens. Consider that there is
a pretty good reason for malpractice insurance, or
"just in case the relatives of the now defunct patient
are learned enough to know what a screw up I am sometimes".
People, I know that many might be intimidated by
"heavy" scientific nomenclature and terminology. Think
of it as learning another language. However, one
doesn't need to do that either, but just use some
comon sense, know how to read and know how to point
and click. Obviously, most posters here know how
to that very well, otherwise this site would not exist.
I can asure that all it takes is a few steps to find
out what your drug of choice is capable of, and without being
a distant relative of Mr. Einstein.
1) Do a search with the name of the drug as the key word.
I recommend using Yahoo over any other search engine, more
straight forward and simpler, contains more links
than most others.
2) Look for specific links that relate to the
"pharmacology" of the drug of choice.
Alternatively, go to Merk's Dictionary site, or the
PDR site and do a search in those sites, see what turns up.
Most info is now on line.
Happy hunting :)
