Drug safety: No more excuses

Categories: Big Pharma, Drug Safety, FDA | Tags: , , , | Posted On:

If you’re like me, you’ve had it with the FDA’s lax enforcement of Big Pharma on safety issues. It’s time to write your Congressperson about it:

U.S.PIRG, the federation of state Public Interest Research Groups (PIRGs), has put together an online petition for you to sign. The petition states:

Dear Chairman Edward Kennedy, Chairman John Dingell, Ranking Member Michael Enzi, Ranking Member Joe Barton:

Please include in the final FDA reform bill the strongest drug safety language possible. This will protect consumers from dangerous and deadly prescription drugs such as Vioxx.

The final bill should contain the House language to publicize clinical studies conducted on drugs so that doctors, researchers and patients know of potentially harmful side effects. It should also contain the House’s tough conflict of interest rules that apply to advisors of the Food & Drug Administration.

Your voice demands to be heard.
