Read Your Drug Labels?

Warning Labels

Do you heed the advice from the “black box” warning—the strongest warning given by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA)—on your prescription drugs? If you answered ‘no,’ you wouldn’t be alone. Recent findings in a drug journal report both patients and doctors don’t comply with the “black box” warnings assigned to dangerous drugs.

The report found that specific warnings were more successful than vague warnings with confusing directions. For example, when a warning requested patients go for “frequent lab tests,” they weren’t followed with as much compliance as drugs with warnings “not to be taken while pregnant” that had a near 100% compliance.

For more information about dangerous drugs visit the Dangerous Drug Legal Center.
