How to: Medication Evaluation


Doing an in-depth review of a medication? Then start by finding the Briefing Documents created for the FDA Advisory Committees. They can be tricky to find but will likely be the best source of information for your review.  Try searching Google using these search terms: <generic name> FDA briefing document.

Search for a review on the Cochrane Library.

Don’t forget to look on ClinicalTrials.gov for studies that should have already been published but weren’t. This can give you hints about clinical research that didn’t show positive results for the pharmaceutical company.

Consider using this Medication Evaluation tool to ensure you cover the important points.
