In a time when the government says they want to make healthcare cheaper it seems someone forget to tell the FDA. The government agency is on a mission to get all non approved FDA drugs off the market. Many of these drugs have been around a long time, are cheap and are helping patients that need them. But the FDA is encouraging Big Pharma to apply for FDA approval of a “branded” version of drugs that are already on the market. Once this approval is given the new FDA approved version cost more and the old version is now illegal to sell and the pharmaceutical companies sue to keep it of the market.
