Every year, thousands of people in America are injured or die as a result of unsafe drugs. Drug manufacturers have a responsibility to market and sell drugs that are safe. They also have a responsibility to provide adequate instructions and warnings for the drugs they sell.
The Federal Drug Administration (FDA) approves drugs for sale before they are sold to the public. Just because a drug has been approved by the FDA does not necessarily mean that it is safe. In fact, the FDA has taken action against drug manufacturers for unsafe drugs that the FDA had previously approved.
Both prescription and over-the-counter drugs may be unsafe.
The following is a list of drugs and supplements that may be unsafe:
- Ephedra / Ephedrine
- Hormone replacement therapy (HRT)
- PPA / Phenylpropanolamine
- Testosterone Replacement Therapy
- Yaz / Yasmin
