Pharmaceuticals should tweet side effects of …

July 6, 2014

The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has proposed a new set of rules for social networks that, if approved, will require that if pharmaceutical companies use Twitter to promote the benefits of their drugs, they must report all the effects secondary, even the most harmful, condensed into the 140 characters allowed by Twitter.

Although some have argued that this regulation would limit freedom of expression, it should be remembered that side effects are a real danger with any type of medicine and should not be overlooked. For example, even seemingly benign acetaminophen can poison a person. In fact, it is considered one of the most common forms of intoxication in the world. Also, if television ads are required to report side effects, why should Twitter be any different?
