If you are not familiar with a publication, Worst Pills/Best Pills News, put out by Dr. Sidney Wolfe. I suggest that you check it out. Dr. Wolfe served as Medical Director of The Health Research Group at Public Citizen for years before he recently stepped down. This dedicated medical doctor’s goal has been to warn consumers about dangerous prescription drugs and to keep these drugs from the market. In fact, Dr. Wolfe has warned the Food and Drug Administration on numerous occasions about drugs that should not be approved and put on the market for sale. Fortunately, Dr. Wolfe, who is still with Public Citizen, and still working hard to protect the public.
A prime example of a warning from Dr. Wolfe involved the diabetes drug, Rezulin, which was approved by the FDA in 1997. This drug was banned by the FDA three years later and for good reason. By that time Rezulin had already caused hundreds of cases of liver damage, including 63 reported deaths. The publication Worst Pills, Best Pills News had warned of Rezulin’s potential danger a year and a half earlier, when Dr. Wolfe petitioned the FDA to ban the medication in 1998. Unfortunately, the FDA didn’t listen.
The Health Research Group at Public Citizen has helped to remove 25 dangerous drugs from the market. I would recommend that any person who is interested in their health and safety subscribe to Worst Pills, Best Pills News. Persons who already subscribe know how valuable the life-saving drug-safety information is that the publication provides. Dr. Wolfe says that the FDA is not the gold-standard agency it once was and I totally agree with him. For this reason, Public Citizen has had to step up its efforts to keep the public safe. In addition to keeping folks informed, the consumer advocacy group also does the following on behalf of the public:
These critical, life-saving activities by Public Citizen are expensive, and the subscription fee for Worst Pills, Best Pills News doesn’t begin to cover their cost. That’s why I hope you will see fit to make a financial gift to help pay for the research behind Public Citizen’s newsletter and the group’s continuing efforts to keep unsafe drugs off the market. You can get more information by going to www.worstpills.org. Unlike most other publications or websites, Public Citizen does not accept money or advertisements from drug companies. This makes sure that Public Citizen can remain independent – with their judgment not clouded by commercial interests – and free to protect the public.
