Yes. Bendectin was taken off the market in the late 1980s even though the drug company never admitted guilt and strongly controlled the evidence that went to court. It was never taken off the market, the drug company simply pulled it off the shelves.
It is back on the market. http://www.volokh.com/2013/04/09/bendectin-is-back/
Bendectin is a drug to combat nausea early in pregnancy. It is a combination of pyrodoxine hydrochloride, vitamin B6, and a antihistimine, doxylamine, found in Unisom® and an antispasmodic, which was later removed.
There are doctors out there who will tell women to take Unisom and B6. Note that the manufacturers of Unisom state "The manufacturers warn to not use this medication if under twelve years of age ,,," My own personal experience is that I never had morning sickness and I took plenty of vitamin B6. Vitamin B6 helps the body metabolize the proteins in the diet, which is one reason why it is a good idea and can/may prevent morning sickness.
AND, littlec, did you know that Dr. Alice Stewart of Oxford University, the woman who advanced the evidence that Xrays hurt fetuses also advocated against routine diagnostic ultrasound in pregnancy. http://www.empowher.com/autism/content/autism-s-theoretical-causes-ultrasound-scans-editorial
Good article Applejuice! I was wary of ultrasounds, and did not have one with either child.
Out of curiosity, do the medical establishment and drug companies ever formally apologize? Or, do they always deny proof of harm, and quietly remove the product with another to take its place? Even now, with proof the early polio vaccine was contaminated with SV40, they act as if it's no big deal. They downplay the DPT reactions, and insist Guillain-Barre and miscarriages from the flu vax are purely coincidental. I understand Merck has not apologized for the Vioxx scandal, although they manipulated the studies and knew about the danger. (If they have since apologized, please let me know so I can correct this.)
