Slow Enforcement of Off-Label Drug Use

Even after federal investigators find a drug company selling products for uses that are not approved by the FDA it can take up to 7 months for them to issue a warning. Then it can take the drug companies another 4 months to stop the practice. Yes, you're right in thinking that millions of prescriptions can be written in that amount of time resulting in lots of profits for drug companies.

As always, it's all about the money when talking about the drug industry, and it's never enough.
