What Are Unsafe Drugs?

Thousands of Americans are seriously injured and die every year from adverse reactions and side effects associated with prescription medications. Drug manufacturers have a responsibility to market drugs and medications that are safe for use by consumers. The Federal Drug Administration (FDA) is the agency responsible for approving prescription drugs before they are sold to the public.
