There's no clear-cut division between drugs that work and drugs that create risks. Example: Tegaserod (Zelnorm®).
Yes, it might kill you, and it's risky enough that the FDA had it pulled from the market. But for some people it was the only thing that ever let them go anywhere without an immediately available toilet. Would you take it? Would you give it to someone without informed consent? Should an informed adult be able to take it?
