Americans are overly trusting of the FDA’s medication approvals

Posted on September 15th, 2011 No Comments

U.S. Food and Drug Administration officials approve new medications by determining whether or not a drug’s benefits outweigh its risks or side effects.

However, a new study reveals that most Americans believe that medications are approved based on a lack of serious side effects.  The study, published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, surveyed more than 3,000 American adults about their knowledge of the FDA and drug approval in the U.S.

Almost 40 percent of the participants believed that only drugs found to be “extremely effective” were approved by the FDA.  In addition, a quarter of the survey’s participants thought that drugs with serious side effects were never approved by the FDA.
