The FDA will be putting out this type of list quarterly, as they have to do so to follow a law passed in 2007 by Congress.

The law required the FDA to publish any new safety warnings or potential risks associated with drugs.

These warnings or risks do not have to be proven, but need to be made aware to doctors and patients.

The FDA will put out this list to showcase which drugs are under review for possible safety issues.

The first list contained 20 drugs and was from January to March 2008.

Some of the drugs on the list include Heparin, and Oxycodone.
