The Internet becomes an increasingly important health resource for consumers curbing their spending on doctor's visits and medications

NEW YORK, Dec. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Nearly 40 million U.S. adults decided not to fill a prescription medication from a doctor in the past year because of the cost, according to pharmaceutical and healthcare market research company Manhattan Research's Cybercitizen Health(TM) v8.0 consumer study and strategic advisory service. The study found that women and patients with neurological and mental health conditions were the most likely to give up their medication due to cost.

For those struggling to afford healthcare, online channels have become increasingly important resources. Over 145 million consumers are online for health, and this year's Cybercitizen Health(TM) study saw the Internet surpass doctors as the top source for obtaining health and medical information.
