    Half of drugs prescribed in France useless or dangerous, say two specialists

    Half of drugs prescribed in France useless or dangerous, say two specialists | World news | The Guardian

    The doctors claim that the state wastes money on unnecessary medicine that they blame for up to 20,000 deaths annually.

    They blame the powerful pharmaceutical companies for keeping these drugs on sale at huge expense to the health system and the taxpayer.

    In their 900-page book The Guide to the 4,000 Useful, Useless or Dangerous Medicines, Even and Debré examined the effectiveness, risks and cost of pharmaceutical drugs available in France. Among those that they alleged were "completely useless" were statins, widely taken to lower cholesterol. The blacklist of 58 drugs the doctors claimed are dangerous included anti-inflammatories and drugs prescribed for cardiovascular conditions, diabetes, osteoporosis, contraception, muscular cramps and nicotine addiction.
