> Recently heard from a relative in the international trade policy "biz": The ratio of drugs developed to drugs actually brought to market by the drug companies is something like >100:1, because of safety regs, etc.

And some of the ones developed have to be taken off the market after their negative side-effects become too prevalent, though that usually takes time. I don't know about any particular ADs but I do recall reading in a book on dangerous prescritpion and non-prescription meds. that a couple of anit-allergy meds. (I think Hisminal and Seledane but it's been awhile...) were eventually taken off the market after they caused some heart problems that resulted in at least one death. So keep ther pharm co.s, testing those puppies and if anything make the bar higher, rather than lower...because once the drugs are out there, they don't come back off the shelves quickly or without lots of outcry.
