Advocating safer, more effective and affordable drugs

What you should know

Since our founding in 1971, Public Citizen has worked to ensure the safety and effectiveness of prescription drugs. When the pharmaceutical industry provides false or misleading information to doctors or patients, we act. We have helped force dozens of dangerous drugs off the market and ensured stronger warnings on many others.

Our Work

Using research, analysis, petitions, and media outreach, our doctors and medical experts push to have dangerous medications taken off the market or their use limited.
