  • As usual, great video. Love that you actually used “fancy shmancy”. I feel like we’re not using enough Yiddish slang anymore these days, and hearing you say it was refreshing. Keep up the good work!

  • The important thing Americans should realize about the FDA approval process of a drug is; 1. The FDA does none of the testing, in many cases they review testing (either done directly or funded by ) the pharmaceutical company seeking the drugs approval…much of the information in these test results has been proven to be manufactured!!!!! 2. A medical patent isn’t awarded unless a drug is a chemical compound (as opposed to natural organic materials) that is unique. 3. It can cost a pharmaceutical company a billion dollars to get a particular drug approved (wonder why we are paying so much for health care?!?!) 4. The FDA is never held accountable for their mistakes in letting unsafe drugs (or food for that matter) become approved. WHAT’S WRONG WITH THIS PROCESS?!?!?

  • Hello healthcaretriage! Thanks for the informative video. I’m wondering if you could do a video about FDA approval of medical devices?

  • Vaccines (like flu) are reformulated every year, so it cannot go this approval process. Which medications are exempt from this multiyear process?

  • The FDA does far greater harm by withholding good drugs and procedures than it prevents by withholding bad ones. We should NOT trust the government to make our health decisions!

  • I wish you had discussed the conflicts of interest inherent in the process. I also think it would have been good to mention that safe and effective does not necessarily mean safer and more effective than the existing drugs.

  • Thanks for the Video! Excuse me for chiming in, I am interested in your opinion. Have you thought about Millawdon Physique Power Trick (search on google)? It is an awesome one of a kind guide for saying goodbye to diabetes minus the hard work. Ive heard some decent things about it and my buddy finally got astronomical success with it.

  • I wouldn’t say hard, but it’s certainly slow. People die while they wait too. So many change.org petitions about the FDA slowness. People should be able to volunteer for trials at any stage.

  • Our society has become so dependent on medicines and it seems as though there is always a new drug, either name brand or generic. So many people just go and buy over the counter drugs to help with symptoms or trust their doctors when they are being prescribed a drug. It seems as though no one ever questions where the drug came from, how it is made or even how safe it is. I myself have never asked these questions or thought twice before going and picking up a new medicine. I will say that after watching this video it is good to know that the FDA does extensive testing on new medicines before releasing them to a public. I never realized how many trials a drug had to go through before it could be deemed as ok for patients to take. It is great that these measures are being taken because if prescribed a wrong medicine a person can become serious harmed by it, whether it messes up their cognitive process or how they move physically. Not only is prescribing a problem but with new drug they have to be careful on what side effects are possible because the side effects cannot outweigh the good the medicine does. I do not like that cancer drugs are being tested on patients who are not responding to normal treatments. I get why it is being done but it just feels as if the weak the desperate are being exploited because they are desperate and willing to try anything. As I said before I understand why they are chosen and it is because they are desperate and are the perfect people to test it on as they already have the disease and nothing else is helping. I just do not like that people with such awful diseases are being used as guinea pigs. I found it very interesting as to how many times data on the studies has to be submitted, reviewed and approved before it can actually go out and be sold. I was quite shocked when he said that it takes fifteen years on average for a drug to be approved. But then again it is that such extensive measures are taken to be sure that drugs people will be buying are safe.

  • If we find ourselves in a crisis such as an epidemic or a pandemic and there is a promising substance which is claimed to be effective, are there any kind of fast procedures for the drug to be approved?

  • the FDA is made up of a bunch of lying hacks. i can not tell you just now much you are made a fool of by these fools.. when we lie and steal it comes back to you. as you grow older you realize this.. and you do not sleep well think about this and never you are always being watched!! again deep inside you know this to be true.. just pretend i do not know what i am talking about!! DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH AND not from FDA or ama or medical fake ou

  • I actually was familiar with this as I have a rare genetic disease that I had the opportunity to join both phase two and phase three trials for an experimental drug to treat it. Currently that drug is languishing in one of the later phases of approval by the FDA and it’s driving me CRAZY! It’s already approved in Europe and I know rare disease drugs are not on the top of the FDA’s radar, but cmon! It’s been almost four years since phase three trials. The community of people who have EPP (my disease) are all pretty close because it’s so rare (and we’re kind of hermits) and everyone who had the control verses the actual product KNEW it, to the point people were pretty excited if they got some mild nausea because they knew they weren’t in the control group. And it’s STILL languishing! There are actually members of the community who have purposefully made a short trip overseas just to get treatment in places like Switzerland. I know safety is super important…but ARG!

  • Is it too easy to get drugs approved?  Read Overdo$sed America to find out.
    Yes spending all of that time and money means research gets fudged to push drugs to market to recoup costs.

  • FDA SUCKS!!!!! Legalize all so we can fucking live and be free to choose. People are going to get there hands on stuff and you can’t stop them. Just Give up. Instead of banning everything just have more drug education.

  • MSB got me here (ASX stock), their shares went bust by 31%, as FDA questioned their data…..

    im here to consider if its a good investment, but first i need to understand how FDA approves drugs…. random hey… thanks for the knowledge!
