When we take a prescription or over-the-counter medication, we expect it to be safe and effective. Often, these pharmaceutical products can have severe or even lethal side effects that were not anticipated by the manufacturers. When a person is harmed from medication they often blame the nurse or doctor for medical malpractice. However, doctors and patients are often kept in the dark about potential side effects purposefully by the pharmaceutical companies.
Many pharmaceutical companies in their rush to make profits may sell and market a drug without performing adequate testing. Below is a list of drugs that have had recent recalls by the FDA.
Prescription Drug Recalls
Medications as seemingly harmless as Tylenol (acetaminophen) and Advil (Ibuprofen) can have toxic effects. Over-the-counter products such as ReNu with MoistureLoc contact lens solution and nutritional supplements have been subject to recalls because of the documented dangers they present to consumers.
Pharmaceutical Liability Lawsuits
When people suffer injuries or wrongful death, from an unsafe medication the wording on the warning labels may be strengthened or the dangerous drug or device may eventually be recalled.
