Drug Safety Experts Say FDA Allowing Dangerous Drugs on the Market

Drug safety experts report that the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) is allowing dangerous drugs to find their way to market. The article was published, today, in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

The article blames the agency’s work to speed approval of new drugs to be what has allowed stroke prevention, cancer, and multiple sclerosis medications to be released without proper safety reviews, said The Wall Street Journal. The article, written by drug safety experts Thomas J. Moore and Curt D. Furberg, states that, in the agency’s zeal to approve medications, they might have mitigated prescription-drug safety. The pair pointed to a multiple sclerosis (MS) drug that has some significant cardiac side effects as well as numerous other risks, as well as Pradaxa, an anticoagulant linked to dangerous bleeding that can be “difficult to treat,” said The Journal.

Consumer Reports Slams Generic Actos

Consumer Reports has slammed the generic versions of the Type 2 diabetes medication Actos (pioglitazone), recently approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA).

Not only does Consumer Reports suggest skipping the two generics, but it also urges consumers against using the Actos brand unless other options have failed, it said. In fact, said the long-time product comparison expert, Actos/pioglitazone can lead to serious adverse events including heart attack, bone fractures, and bladder cancer. Other diabetes drugs are considered better first options. Continue »
