Questions to Ask before Joining a Clinical Trial

  • Why are they doing the study in the first place?
  • How long will it last, and where is it taking place?
  • Does everyone get the drug, or do some people get a placebo (sugar pill)?
  • What will I have to pay for?
  • Will I be able to continue taking the test drug after the trial is over? Who will pay for it?
  • Will I have to stop any drugs or other treatments I am now using?
