Keep Our Medicine Cabinets Safe

    1. Petition by

      Take Justice Back

Generic drugs make up 80% of all prescriptions filled in the United States. But generic drug manufacturers cannot independently update their labels to warn of new side-effects and cannot be held accountable if their drugs injure or kill Americans.

Both brand name and generic manufacturers should be accountable for the safety of their products.  If no one is accountable, no one is safe.

Tell the FDA to act now to restore accountability because safety is an issue that cannot wait.

      I to was given the Generic Drugs and I'am having long term severe side effects of these Meds. They need to be held accountable for the damages they have and are continuing to do to all humanbeings. The purpose of generic drugs is some cannot afford name brands but yet causing the same killing effects. If they don't have to update their labels how does the FDA know exactly what is in the drugs. Not updating the labels is silently killing our ppl. just at a cheaper cost !!!!
