Welcome to HealthyStock


HealthyStock.net is a consumer-friendly informational website destined to the wide audience. Our site gives relevant and reliable material about most popular medications.

Currently our library includes data on antibiotics, antidepressants, muscle relaxers, anticonvulsants, and pain drugs.

We provide high quality noncommercial, evidence-based, consumer-oriented drug information in an easy to read and understand form. We accomplish this by publishing credible content which is based on the most trusted sources, including:

  • PDR: Physicians' Desk Reference, which provides FDA-approved product labeling
  • Scientific journals: The Lancet, Annals of Internal Medicine, British Medical Journal, Journal of the American Medical Association
  • NCBI: biomedical literature service of the U.S. National Library of Medicine

Describing the medications we focus on their approved and unlabelled uses, recommended dosages, pharmacological properties, possible side effects, comparisons and interesting facts. Above all we are monitoring numerous health related internet forums, discussion boards and blogs and show our readers current reviews and ratings made by patients treated with these medications.

Knowledge is power! And we encourage our readers to take an active role in maintaining their own health and fitness. Many health decisions are complex. And to help you make informed decisions we give you detailed explanations of the safe and effective use of medications that are consistent with the advises that health care professionals are referencing in the PDR.

Curious facts
