Part 1 Consumer Protection

PharmaCo created and patented a prescription drug that will make people look younger and lose weight. The problem is that the drug causes significant stomach problems. Paige Turner, an executive of PharmaCo, wants to advertise the drug’s benefits on the Internet, television, and radio without mentioning the stomach problems. Her secretary, Pete Zahutt, explains that she could run into problems, and that he is not sure the drug can even be advertised. Paige disagrees stating that it is up to physicians to warn patients of possible complications. Paige tells Pete that she will not provide any information regarding contacting PharmaCo so that no one at the company will be annoyed by receiving numerous inquiries about obtaining the drug’s benefits. What would an FDA representative likely say in regard to Paige’s plan?
