Did You Know...

David Graham, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration official who testified before Congress with great fanfare earlier this week, argued that the FDA is horribly lax when it comes to recalling dangerous drugs. He mentioned five drugs he thought should probably be pulled from the market: the cholesterol-lowering drug Crestor, the acne drug Accutane, the weight loss drug Meridia, the COX-2 inhibitor Bextra, and the asthma drug Serevent.

Conspicuously absent from Graham’s list: RU-486, the abortion drug cocktail that has been linked to five serious bacterial infections and three deaths. Among those killed: Holly Patterson, a teenager I wrote about last year. Apparently, Graham’s concern about dangerous side effects doesn’t extend to young women who use RU-486.

Fortunately, others are taking action. A few days ago, the FDA (the agency Graham castigated for being too lax) strengthened warnings on RU-486, and Republicans reportedly plan to introduce legislation to pull RU-486 from the market.
