  1. This is why I subscribe to Worst Pills Best Pills. Their advice? Do not use a new medication for seven years. Then check the page for reporting adverse reactions page on the FDA website. Allow other people to be the human guinea pigs. Seven years did not make a difference for DES, but for many drugs it does.
