Prescription Medication Injuries and Illnesses
Many FDA-approved prescription medications and over-the-counter drugs can cause serious illnesses and injuries. It is often discovered that these drugs were improperly tested in a rush to get the product to market. The consequences of a defective drug can be disastrous, and result in severe injuries such as:
- Heart attack
- Liver failure
- Kidney failure
- Blood clotting
- Deep vein thrombosis
- Gallbladder disease
Most pharmaceutical and over-the-counter drugs often have side-effects that are mentioned on warning labels that come with the product. Even so, the risks of taking certain drugs can end up outweighing their benefits. In some situations, a drug may even have extreme side-effects that don't become apparent until after it has been made available to the public. Eventually, enough data about a dangerous drug will surface, and the FDA will issue a recall. In the meantime, many patients taking the drug will suffer serious health issues. If you have been harmed by a defective drug such as Avandia,
Zoloft, contact a
