If your doctor seemed a little too excited about getting you hooked on Ambien the last time you came into the office, you might want to think twice about those faint dollar signs you swore you saw reflect back at you as you took the prescription form.
The Pioneer Press has created an easy-to-use database of all payments to doctors from 2002 to 2008 from pharmaceutical companies. You can search by doctor name, location, or company in question. At least you'll have an idea of what could be enticing your doctor to fill your body with drugs or push one brand over another.
