Reviving a Discontinued Drug

September 24, 2019

Most of the drugs that are taken off the market are removed for reasons other than safety. However, sometimes drug makers choose to remove drugs from the market even if there is no problem with their safety profile. In fact, from 1994 through 2015, 215 drugs were withdrawn from sale, and only 5.1 percent of them were withdrawn for reasons of safety or effectiveness.
