Do Drug Companies Have To Warn Patients Of Medicine Risks?
You’ve probably seen a drug ad on television. Those commercials usually follow the same script. Soft music. Smiling people. The actors all appear to be living happy lives courtesy of some pill. Then, at the end, the drug company flashes a really quick list of pretty scary potential side effects. If it’s a 30 second ad, the first 29 seconds talk all about how the pill cured the actor’s arthritis. Then, at the last second, a quick warning appears: Don’t take this pill if you are a human between the ages of 20 and 90. Otherwise, your arms may fall off! Consult your doctor.
