FDA List - Drugs with Potential Safety Issues

I just read about this list in the newspaper - the government is now posting drugs under investigation for potential safety problems on this Web site. So far, there are 20 meds on the list; one I've tried is Cymbalta. The potential risk for that is urinary retention. Lucky for me, my body did NOT like Cymbalta. I tried it a few years ago and the morning after the first night I took it, I was in a complete daze. I had to miss work, and I pretty much just stared into space until it wore off.

Anyways though, getting back to the Web site, this is a good resource to check every so often if you're taking medications!
