take Arava off the market
The FDA is being pressured to take Arava off the market.
The pressure is coming from Public Citizen, the influential consumer group founded by Ralph Nader. In the last 5 years they've petitioned to ban Redux... Rezulin...Trovan...Lotronex...and Meridia.
Now they're going after Arava (leflunomide). They claim it's more toxic than methotrexate...and not more effective.
