And why would "popular medications" leave the market, exactly?  Several medications where very popular and ended up causing heart damage or greatly increased risk of catastrophic illness, were banned for safety reasons.  But what can you do about that?

It's not like a pharma company is going to voluntarily stop selling a popular product unless they're required to and the why is usually safety.
