I've ranted extensively on the unreliability of RateMDs. Now there's a site where patients rate pharmaceuticals. So how should we rate the latest rating site? Let's take a look.
ARBs are misclassified as ACE inhibitors.
Moricizine is rated as the number one antiarrhythmic, superior to beta blockers and amiodarone.
Metformin, arguably the best overall agent for type two diabetes, was rated 9th, below several sulfonylureas.
Binding resins are rated above statins for lipid lowering.
I could go on. Suffice it to say I'm not impressed.
