Study Finds That Consumers Overlook Over-The-Counter Drug Warnings

Bloomberg News reported, “Consumers overlook warnings about potential tampering on over-the-counter medications at least 80 percent of the time, suggesting packages and labels need to be redesigned to attract attention and improve safety, a study found.” The study’s “participants spent the most time focused on the brand names and product claims of nonprescription drugs” and “more than half of those surveyed also missed alerts about child safety on medicines that did not have child-resistant packaging, according to the research today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.” The results of the study “raise doubts about whether the warnings meet U.S. Food and Drug Administration requirements that they be ‘prominent’ and ‘conspicuous,’ the researchers said.”

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
