FDA Very early beginning: 1902 Approval for food, medicine, supplements, vaccines, cosmetics, and medical devices Typically use labeling as initial warning. If warranted, can request the compound be pulled from the market.
Sometimes, despite all the research that is done during drug development, there’s still a problem. How does that happen?
Side effect wasn’t seen in animal testing Side effect wasn’t seen during human testing Small “issue” FDA missed during paperwork review and approval
Drugs to research What happened with this drug? Is it still on the market? What was it/is it used for? Which company manufactured the drug? Was the drug recalled? Was the recall voluntary? What were the side effects? Any other interesting information?
