Recently there has been an increase in people investigation
their medications via the internet or by talking to their friends.
There is concern that this undermines the doctor-patient relationship.

I am interested in your ideas about this

I don't really think that it undermines the doctor-patient relationship unless the patient or the doctor misunderstands the other. I think that because doctors are unable to meet with patients for as long as they'd like to that it's beneficial for patients to have so much information at hand. But it is still the doctor's responsibility to explain to patients their diagnosis as much as possible as well as why they are getting their medication.
