What Causes Dangerous Drugs to Be Released?
Sometimes, drug and pharmaceutical companies know that a drug is dangerous and has shown serious and dangerous side effects, but fail to properly warn consumers about those known risks of taking the drug. Even drugs that have passed inspection by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) can still be dangerous and cause serious injury to consumers.
Dangerous drugs are the result of a number of factors. These include:
- Insufficient testing of drugs
- Premature release into the marketplace
- Companies unaware of the risks and side-effects
Dangerous drugs can also be the result of a practice known as "off-label" use where the drugs are used for diseases or conditions that they were not originally designed or tested for. In these cases, unknown harmful side effects can result when patients are prescribed drugs for conditions that the drug was never intended for.
