The Danger of Prescription Drugs that Fail to Warn of Harmful Side EffectsFriday, October 21, 2011
Americans spent $307.4 billion on prescription drugs in 2010, according to a recent report from consulting firm IMS Health.
All of these drugs go through FDA approval only to find out later that there are numerous problems that the public is not being warned about.
As an example Plavix makers claim that it is superior to Aspirin in preventing heart attacks and strokes, studies have found that the medication carries no significant benefit and Plavix dangers actually increase the risk of injury for some users. For individuals with high cholesterol or high blood pressure, Plavix doubles the risk of a heart attack, stroke or serious bleed. For users with a history of gastrointestinal problems, the blood thinner carries twelve (12) times the risk of recurrent ulcers or GI bleeds when compared with aspirin and a heartburn pill.
