FDA Lists Side-Effect Probes

The Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has posted 20 drugs being investigated for possible side effects. The list will be updated quarterly to better inform patients and doctors of the latest developments. At least 5 of the drugs on the list had problems that have already been publicized like heparin.

The drug companies are upset at this list because patients need to understand the risks and benefits of a drug. This coming from the folks who look for ways to not tell consumers ANYTHING about risks!

To the FDA: long overdue, but it's a start.
