I'm not buying the book!
https://www.npr.org/sections/health-sho ... -you-think
If the FDA suspects a Chinese generic, a more effective way than inspecting plants is to spot check more samples from the US distributor or buy samples from stores.

There appear to be no examples, just "...people on maintenance medications who are taking these drugs day in and day out. Those drugs may have toxic impurities. Those can build up in your liver, you may not know it, or you may be having side effects that you didn't think about before, and then you realize, "Wait a second I was switched to a different generic" or "I was switched from a brand to a generic."

That was all speculation.

If the journalist had money to fly to China, it would have been better spent getting drugs here and sending them to an analytical lab here. Each drug at approved stage has a known impurity profile.

If you take an injectable drug, the risk in generics is greater. Even sealed ampules get bacterial growth.

One area where generics fail is 12 hour formulas. The tablet does not dissolve at the slow rate. Some drugs also a pressed too hard to pills and take longer to dissolve in your gut. They all would have the right amount of drug per pill.

Teva makes a good portion of your generics.

This is novel: formulate an addiction treatment drug, which they invented, to make it more addictive!
https://www.npr.org/2019/07/11/74085694 ... settlement

The drug is effective if used supervised. Most European heroin addicts are on it. It is of some use in pain relief, and it does not really get you high.

Deaths from Suboxone are a very small percentage of opiate deaths.

But for overseas inspections—due to complex logistics of visas and access to the plant—the FDA typically gives weeks or months of advance notice, allowing companies to fabricate critical aspects of their operations. The plants had drafted "internal memorandums and records directing employees to create falsified records in preparation for FDA regulatory inspections," Lal wrote back to senior officials at the FDA's Maryland headquarters.

Articles on the opiate crisis neglect to state the role of the DEA
https://www.npr.org/sections/health-sho ... ust-soared
The DEA is partly to blame as they have to approve the yearly amounts manufactured. They could have approved lesser amounts. Too much regulation?

It looks like the lawyers will make lots of money and kill any incentive for innovation, but why should they care?

Companies that have public stock don't get to do this:
New York state Attorney General Letitia James says the family that owns Purdue Pharma, maker of the opioid Oxycontin, used Swiss bank accounts to transfer one billion dollars from the company to themselves.

Purdue is now bankrupt
