The Food and Drug Administration says Bayer is marketing some aspirin medicines with unproven health claims. In a pair of warning letters, the agency jumped the company for never submitting proof that the pills are effective in fighting heart disease and osteoporosis. The drugs are Bayer Women’s Low Dose Aspirin plus Calcium and Bayer Aspirin with Health Advantage. The FDA says treatments for heart disease and osteoporosis must be reviewed by government scientists and can’t be sold over-the-counter. The agency says, however, that no major negative reactions have been reported with the drugs. Bayer says it stands behind the claims on both products, saying that they aren’t intended to replace professional medical advice.
