FDA report: Women having more drug side effects than men

The FDA data provide an incomplete picture, but the information underscores serious challenges in delivering safe care and reducing waste in the health-care system. A 2006 Institute of Medicine report estimated that 1.5 million preventable adverse drug events occur each year, and the committee said the number may be much higher.
