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.
