In the US, these drugs are prescribed in accordance with the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act. The efficacy and safety of such drugs is outlined in the Prescription Drug Marketing Act 1987, and is enforced by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration).

Dangers Related to Prescription Drugs
All medications (including many over-the-counter drugs) are subjected to clinical trials and tests before being approved for use. But given the strong profit motivation, sometimes the drug manufacturers overlook or ignore significant risks and complications.
Side effects and other health risks may have been noticed early in the process or during the clinical trials, only to be glossed over or ignored by the manufacturers, endangering the health and lives of many innocent victims who use these drugs.
