Don't think I've seen a listing thread of 'problem' pharmaceutical products here - that's problem as in 'withdrawn by the regulators because it did people in, not 'it doesn't work for me'.

Here's my current favourite - Vioxx aka why didn't we just stick with naproxen:

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think they're saying 'you made up the results, pal'. Brings a new meaning to the term 'doctoring the results'

Here's an old editorial about the whole debacle (free subcription for this article) RTDATE%2Bdesc&excludeflag=TWEEK_element&searchid=1&FIRSTINDEX=0&resourcetype=HWCIT
