Dangerous Drugs

Prescription and over the counter drugs are taken daily by millions of Americans. Most drugs are associated with some type of side effect and can affect each person differently. Some drugs have side effects that can be more dangerous than others and can pose serious health risks. Unfortunately, often times those severe side effects are not discovered until innocent patients suffer. There are some drugs that have already been recalled or are known to have serious side effects such as Vioxx, Zyprexa, Fen-Phen, Celebrex, Ephedrine, Crestor, Paxil, and Bextra. Attorney Group for Louisiana can match you with the right Louisiana dangerous drug attorney so call now or fill out the form on the contact us page.

Drugs can be recalled or warnings issued to limit them several different ways. Pharmaceutical companies can choose to recall the drug voluntarily when it is proven that the drug is ineffective or dangerous. The U. S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) can recall the drugs. The FDA investigates new information through clinical trials, studies and complaints from doctors and patients regarding the safety of a drug. If they determine that the risks are not outweighed by the benefits of a certain drug, they will send a warning to the public, require a warning label be put on the drug and could request that a recall be issued. The FDA can use legal resources to prevent the sale of a drug if the drug company refuses to issue a recall.

Risks Associated with Dangerous Drugs

New drugs advertised as having great benefits are put on the market every year even though some of them can have serious side effects. Far too often, innocent people suffer severe injury or even death as a result from complications with dangerous drugs. The following are possible side effects that consumers may experience after taking dangerous drugs:

  • Dizziness
  • Vision problems
  • Stomach ulcers
  • Vomiting
  • Tremors
  • Angina
  • Heart attack
  • High blood pressure
  • Depression or suicide
  • Swelling of extremities
  • Increased risk of stroke

You should seek immediate medical care if you have experienced any ill effects such as the above mentioned. You will also want to get a copy of all medical records to give to your Louisiana Dangerous Drugs Attorneys should you decide to pursue a claim against the pharmaceutical company.

Drug makers have a duty to provide safe products. If there are risks of harm associated with their products, they also must provide adequate warnings. If a drug maker fails to fulfill this duty, it could be held liable in lawsuits for injuries that may result.

People injured by bad drugs may be eligible to recover money for:

  • Medical Expenses
  • Lost Wages
  • Pain and Suffering

The families of those who have died may be eligible to recover money for funeral expenses and the pain that comes with losing a loved one.
