Make reporting of adverse drug events mandatory and timely
This petition had 44 supporters
Because 1 in 5 drugs introduced to the market between 1975 and 2000 were either taken off the market or had "black box warnings" attached to them due to life-threatening side effects--way too late for the unsuspecting people that were taking them and suffered as a result. Reporting of adverse drug events are voluntary, hospitals choose not to make those reports and dangerous drugs remain on the market. The public has no way of knowing that they could be taking drugs that will cause life-threatening side effects. People die as a result.
