about this book

When award-winning investigative journalist Stephen Fried looked into the cause of his wife's violent reaction to a prescribed new antibiotic, he wrote a series of articles on his research into the matter which led to a full-scale probe of "the other drug problem"-legal drugs and and the unexplored problem of adverse drug reactions. Bitter Pills investigates the legal drug culture in the United States, including the international pharmaceutical industry, the FDA, physicians, pharmacologists, and many others.
