Many people feel reassured when they know that the medications they take have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and have been sold to patients for years or even decades. But unfortunately, FDA approval and time on the market aren’t always guarantees of safety. When drug manufacturers don’t fully test their products, or worse yet, when they hide potential safety issues, innocent patients can be seriously harmed.
Every prescription and even over-the-counter medication has the potential to cause serious harm. In most cases, the difference between a therapeutic medication and a dangerous medication is the dosage. But in other cases, even taking the proper dosage can put patients at risk due to problems like contamination or side effects that can take years or decades to show up.
