Today in the Free Market 5 – Drugs kill M’kay

Big Pharma and the FDA have both known for years that certain asthma drugs can cause death. However what is most startling how. These drugs can actually cause and worsen an asthma attack.  The drugs marketed as Symbicort, Advair, and Serevent all carry warning labels saying “cause an increased risk of death from asthma problems.”.  Each year over 4,000 people die from complications caused by these drugs, which is higher than the number of people who die from asthma!

But Advair alone brought in over $5 billion for its manufacturer,  GlaxoSmithKline, so it remains available.
