Welcome to Consumer Reports Advocacy

Consumer Reports is an independent nonprofit organization that works for a fair, safe and transparent marketplace.

Since we were founded as Consumers Union in 1936, we have advocated for the rights of all consumers. Now, we are united under the Consumer Reports name, bringing together our trusted testing, research, journalism, and advocacy.

We hope you will partner with us and our six million members for a better world.

William Vaughn Testimony at Hearing on Generic Drugs

Best Buy Drug recommendations are the drugs in a class that would probably be the safest2 and most effective at the lowest cost generally for most consumers. But we stress in all our publications that you should consult with your doctor on a case by case basis. This is not cookbook medicine. It is guidance on a conversation-starting place for consumers, doctors, and pharmacists, based on the best science and evidence currently available.
