What to Know About Black Box Warnings (Drug Label)

Black Box Warnings (Drug Label)

When a prescription drug is known to present significant health risks or life-threatening reactions, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires drug manufacturers to provide what’s called a black box warning or black label warning around the label or on any literature. Black box warnings are the strongest FDA warning for prescription drugs. For consumers they are a safety issue; for drug manufacturers they can limit profit.
