In an effort to stop drugs from being dumped into sewers, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Station Monday installed three boxes in front of the Crescenta Valley Sheriff’s Station to receive old prescription drugs, illegal narcotics and used syringes for proper disposal.

Recently, when the New England Journal of Medicine announced that the diabetes drug Avandia could substantially increase the risk of heart attacks and deaths, the news caused a flurry of headlines and renewed calls for drug manufacturers to publicly disclose the results of clinical drug studies. This is just the latest drug crisis in a series of crises. That's why the consumer group CALPIRG is joining me in calling for improving drug safety by requiring all drug testing reports to be made available to the public.

Q. My dad used to be a happy-go-lucky guy, always upbeat and joking around, but now he seems to dwell on all the bad news on TV and he doesn't want to go out of the house because it might rain or there might be traffic. Should I be concerned? We all worry from time to time. Worrying is normal. It motivates us to think through problems and develop solutions. But sometimes worrying seems to take over a person's life. If your dad is worrying excessively, so much so that it affects daily tasks and relationships, he may have an anxiety disorder.

There are two similar-sounding propositions on the November 8th Special Election ballot that have to do with the cost of prescription medications: Propositions 78 and 79. If both measures pass, the one receiving the most votes will take effect and will cancel out the other. As a physician and as a member of our society, I feel that I have a stake in and an understanding of these propositions. The cost of medications can be prohibitive.

A Los Angeles County sheriff's program encouraging safe disposal of leftover prescription drugs and hypodermic needles has kept several tons of potentially dangerous chemical and biological waste out of sewers and landfills this year, officials reported. But the program has proven so popular that it's forced sheriff's officials to outsource disposal to another department, and has prompted suspicions that medical clinics — not private residents for whom the program was intended — are taking advantage of the free service.
