Patients and physicians often don't see the dagner of a drug because they see limited information. The FDA sees most everything and can weigh benefit to risk. Even if a drug had no side effects in half the population and killed the other half, 50% of people would think the drug is fine. The old colchicine, pulled off the market last year is a great example. It killed hundreds of people because it was not regulated. The new colchicine formulation, FDA approved, actually removed toxic compounds found in the old versions. People complain about the efforts to make drugs safe, but if a drug is not safe, it should not be on the market.
