A risky practise

There is debate about off-label drug use.

Doctors emphasize that off-label prescribing has its place in medical practice,

but they also admit that using a drug off-label can raise the risk of lawsuits should a patient have unwanted or bad side effects.
"Off-label prescribing can expose patients to risky and ineffective treatments," medical ethics professor Rebecca Dresser and Joel Frader, MD, write in the fall 2009 issue of The Journal of Law, Medicine & Ethics. 

Although some off-label therapies can be beneficial and even lifesaving for some patients,

in most cases, there is little or no scientific evidence to prove they work.
