New Drugs are Less Safe Due to New Law


A law called The 21st Century Cures Act, which was signed into law in December of 2016, gets new drugs onto the market quicker, but with fewer regulations. This means the new drugs may be dangerous, and may not help the condition it is supposed to treat.

As a safeguard, stick with existing drugs, that have been around for many years, with known side effects and benefits. All drugs carry some risk, and should only be used if diet and exercise will not correct the problem.
