Rates of Spontaneous Reporting of Adverse Drug Reactions in France
Lets follow the path here. The FDA can be paid to push a drug through before it has been properly studied. Within 7 years, about 20% of these drugs are then given black box warnings or removed from the market AFTER their release. And these warnings rely on input from the clinicians in the field using the drugs. Sound a little hairy so far? Well, it only gets better…this study finds that, despite greater than 100,000 (in France alone) adverse drug responses, less than 5% were actually reported. And chiropractic’s detractors try to say chiropractic is dangerous?????
