The FDA's drug approval process is pretty good at determining which drugs are safe and effective. What the FDA doesn't look into is how similar drugs compare to one another. If there are three competing blood pressure drugs on the market, how do you decide which one to take? We need more research on comparative effectiveness to help us tell the differences between similar drugs.
