Benoxaprofen is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug. It was marketed by Lilly Pharmaceuticals under the brand name "Oraflex". It was withdrawn from the US market after people began to get sick and die. Doctors who claimed to have never been sick a day in their lives, claim Oraflex made them ill. A segment on this dangerous medicine on CBS News 60 Minutes caused the withdrawal of this bad drug. The news segment was titled "A Bad Drug".
