efore you jab have a look at some big FDA blunders.
After years testing and millions of dollars here are a few drugs that took time to show how bad they are.
Quaaludes to help you sleep: Approved for 20 years, became a street drug, then made a schedule 1 drug alongside LSD and Heroin.
Cylert for ADD/ADHD: Approved in 1975 caused liver failure in young children after many years. Apart from the increasing deaths it was left on the market until 10 years ago when it was withdrawn due to “falling sales”
Darvon: was on the market for 55 years as an opioid pain reliever. And while it may have gotten rid of that headache, it was awful for your heart creating 2,110 deaths between 1981 and 1999 alone. It was approved to be sold if a label saying “Can cause death” was added to the label.
Metrazol: For compulsive therapy, was pulled off the market — after 48 years — for causing uncontrollable seizures, pulled muscles, and spine fractures in an estimated 42% of patients.
Vioxx: an anti-inflammatory medication to treat arthritis, was the subject of one of the largest recalls in history. Approved in 1999, it was prescribed to over 20 million people, the following year, it was recalled, but instead of letting troubling studies lead to a recall or even any further research, a small warning was added to the box. In 2003 alone, Vioxx brought in $2.5 billion.
Eventually, however, trials were conducted to test the drug’s long-term effects. But that trial couldn’t even be completed because of the increased risk of heart attack and stroke among participants. One of the FDA’s own scientists, Dr. David Graham, estimated that Vioxx had been associated with more than 27,000 heart attacks or deaths linked to cardiac problems.
