Some Commonly Prescribed US Drugs Are Banned in Other Countries

The Ventura County (CA) Star editorializes, “It is a little-known fact that some drugs Americans are commonly prescribed by their doctors are banned in other countries. For instance, if your doctor gave you a prescription today for painkillers Darvocet, Darvon or their generic counterparts, you are unlikely to know they were banned a few years back in Britain because of a number of suicides and accidental overdoses; or that Europe’s drug regulators are recommending other European countries also ban them for the same reason.” The FDA “will now require a boxed warning on the drugs’ label and a pamphlet accompanying each bottle, with warnings about taking too much.” The Star comments, “We hope the warnings work and, if they don’t, we hope an estimated 21 million prescriptions a year – and the accompanying profits – don’t get in the way of the FDA protecting Americans’ health.”

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...)
