The FDA is investigating a hand full of drugs currently prescribed for a number of conditions.  Check the list and see if you or someone you love is taking any of these.  If you are, mention to your prescribing doctor that you are concerned. 
Generally speaking, unless your life is in danger, newer drugs are not always better.  If you can get the same results from a medication that has been around for a while, ask about getting a prescription for that one instead.
