The amount of information available from and about the pharmaceutical industry, the drugs they produce and their marketing tactics is staggering.  As I run across websites and other resources that have outstanding information related to this field I'll list them below. 

 

OpenSecrets.org

OpenSecrets.org is your nonpartisan guide to money’s influence on U.S. elections and public policy. Whether you’re a voter, journalist, activist, student or interested citizen, use our free site to shine light on your government.  In looking through this site you can find all sorts of valuable data regarding the influence the pharmaceutical industry has on our government including how much they contribute to campaigns and how much they spend lobbying.  http://OpenSecrets.org
 

ProPublica.org

"Journalism in the Public Interest"  These people have done an intense amount of research into the pharmaceutical companies and how much money they pay to doctors for things such as speaking, "consulting" , education and basically marketing to patients and other doctors.  http://projects.propublica.org/docdollars/
 

Drugs.com

This site has a great deal of information about drugs (obviously).  Although it is very pro-drugs and pharmaceutical it also has some interesting data including sales statistics for the top selling prescription drugs.  You kind find that information for 2009 here: http://www.drugs.com/top200_units.html

 

PublicCitizen.org

"Protecting Health, Safety and Democracy"  Serving as an overall watchdog for the public. this website stays current with vital information about prescription drugs.

"Americans are bombarded with ads that begin with “Talk to your doctor about…” and plug some pharmaceutical product or device. And many doctor-patient encounters end with a prescription of some sort. The rising cost of drugs and devices is a major contributor to overall health costs in this country; whether or not we are getting value for money is an open question." http://www.citizen.org/Page.aspx?pid=1249

 

WorstPills.org

This is an independent, expert site offering a second opinion for prescription drug information and and harmful effects.   http://WorstPills.org

 

Citizen's Commission on Human Rights

If you are looking for accurate and unbiased information a psychiatric drugs this is one of the best places to look.  They have a searchable database of psychiatric medications and the adverse events reported to the FDA's Medwatch system connected with these drugs.  http://CCHRInt.org
