Rapid Response:

Revue Prescrire could be for you

If you find DTB too dry, the French independent drug bulletin Revue Prescrire may be more to your liking. For committed Anglophones, there's also Prescrire International.

With headlines like "A last resort", a cartoon character who gives poorly-rated pills the boot, and a no-holds-barred editorial stance, it does a better job than most of stirring the blood.

Prescrire doesn't, however, have a spokesmodel of the month.

Prescrire International
