In a new, independent report released last month from the Institute for Safe Medication Practices, four adverse drug reactions stand out from all others. From severe muscle damage to a deadly viral infection of the brain, their annual report covers it all and we’re talking about it. (This is part 1 of a two-part episode. Tune in next week for part 2.)
