FDA Removes Some Cold, Cough and Allergy Drugs

FDA Removes Some Cold, Cough and Allergy Drugs

The Federal Drug Administration has removed for sale more than 500 unapproved prescription cough, allergy and cold medicines because none have been appropriately evaluated by the FDA for sale.

Some of the drugs affected are Lodrane, Cardec, Organidin and Pediahist, which have all been ordered off the market by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration. None have ever been evaluated by the agency for safety, even though some have been available for many years. The unapproved drugs came to market before a 1962 federal law required that medications be evaluated by the agency for safety and effectiveness prior to being sold.

Reports say that the FDA feels the medications pose unnecessary risk to consumers, and that removing unapproved products will reduce potential risks to consumers. Reports also say that many doctors were unaware of the unapproved status of these drugs and continue prescribing them.

  1. After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
