FDA issues 'Black Box' warning for Cipro, similar drugs
by Paul Dalton, July 9, 2008
"Black Box warnings are the FDA’s most important notices on potential dangers of a drug. They are set apart from other safety information to draw the attention of prescribers and patients."
"AIDS" drugs have "black box" labels, but there the fact that they are called "lifesaving" must balance the toxicity effect out. I suppose the fact they are called a "cocktail" must really help as well...
Thank God for labels. What would we do without them?
