Have You Been the Victim of a Defective Drug?

There are many occasion when we turn to prescription medications and drugs for help with an illness or chronic condition. When you take these medications, you are trusting that they will help you rather than hurt you. The truth is that there are always side effects to prescription drugs, some of which can be serious enough to seek compensation.

Sometimes drugs have unforeseen consequences that nobody planned for. Sometimes researchers may become aware of a drug’s dangerous side effects, but decide that the cost of paying reparations is better than paying to pull the drugs of the market. Examples of bad drug cases include:

  • Actos – a diabetes treatment found to increase cancer risk.
  • GranuFlo – used in the dialysis process, this has been linked to an increased risk of cardiopulmonary arrest and sudden cardiac death.
  • Paxil and other SSRI antidepressants – anti-depressants which can increase the risk of birth defects, pulmonary hypertension, and other problems in children born to mothers exposed to Paxil. Similar drugs include Zoloft, Lexapro and Prozac.
  • Fosamax – prescribed for osteoporosis but has been linked to femur fractures and bone decay of the jaw.
  • Pradaxa – a blood thinner used for the prevention of strokes and blood clots. It has been linked to fatal bleeding.
  • Risperdal – primarily used for the treatment of psychotic disorders, such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, and to help manage symptoms of irritability in autistic children. Risperdal (Risperidone) and generic versions have been linked to breast development in males, Gynecomastia, heart problems, diabetes, and stroke.
  • Benicar – used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension) in children and young adults. It hsd brrn linkrd to chronic and severe diarrhea and dehydration, which in some cases has caused death.
