The following websites offer independent, evidence-based, unbiased (or at least, less biased) information on pharmaceuticals.  In the 21st century, despite industry's claim that pharmaceutical reps are an important source of information for doctors, there is little excuse for health care providers relying on biased promotional information. But please note: None of the following comes with free lunch!
