On Saturday’s front page we had a story about the FDA posting a list of prescription drugs that are possibly unsafe and are now under investigation.
Many readers wondered why we ran the list on Kansas.com and not in the paper.
Simple answer: We should have; we messed up.
It’s easy to fall back on the Web as the place to expand on ideas and offer more information. In this case, however, there was room to run the list in the print edition and we should have.
If it’s of any help, here’s the list of drugs. (Yes, I know this blog is on the Web, too, but we sometimes run posts in the print edition as well.)
Arginine Hydrochloride Injection (R-Gene 10)
Fluorouracil Cream (Carac) and Ketoconazole Cream (Kuric)
Insulin U-500 (Humulin R)
Ivermectin (Stromectol) and Warfarin
Octreotide Acetate Depot (Sandostatin LAR)
Oxycodone Hydrochloride Controlled-Release (Oxycontin)
Perflutren Lipid Microsphere (Definity)
Phenytoin Injection (Dilantin)
Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF) Blockers
