The FDA tracks “adverse events” related to drugs in its Adverse Event Reporting System (AERS).  Potential safety issues revealed in this manner may lead the agency’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) to require the manufacturer to make changes in the drug’s labeling in one or more places: boxed warnings, contraindications, precautions, adverse reactions, and patient package insert/medication guide.

While the FDA at least attempts to keep up with newly emerging risks, harm has usually been done by the time the problem is discovered. Is it too much to ask for medications to be proven safe before they are prescribed and sold?
