List of FDA approved drugs later pulled from market in the U.S. until 2014

Selected FDA-approved prescription drugs later recalled from the U.S. market until 2014 (in years)

List of FDA approved drugs later pulled from market in the U.S. until 2014 This statistic depicts a list of selected FDA-approved prescription drugs, which were later pulled from the U.S. market. The longest running FDA-approved drug which was later recalled from the market was Darvon & Darvocet, between 1955 and 2010, which stayed in the market for 55 years. The reason for the recall was serious toxicity to the heart: between 1981 and 1999 there were over 2,110 deaths reported connected to that drug. According to the Food and Drug Adminitration (FDA), a "drug is removed from the market when its risks outweigh its benefits. A drug is usually taken off the market because of safety issues with the drug that cannot be corrected, such as when it is discovered that the drug can cause serious side effects that were not known at the time of approval."
