Sugarman Law: Litigating Against Defective Prescription Drugs
Am I at risk?
The FDA exists to ensure the safety of prescription drugs, but it is ultimately the manufacturer’s responsibility to disclose associated risks. When it becomes clear drug manufacturers did not disclose risks they were aware of, patients can pursue legal action for these severe side affects. At Sugarman Law, we are well-versed in helping clients affected by the following defective and dangerous prescription drugs:
- Accutane – Accutane was approved by the FDA in 1982 to treat severe cystic (nodular) acne. It was recalled in 2009 after reports to the FDA regarding a laundry list of severe side effects the manufacturer did not report.
- Avandia – The FDA is urging a recall of this diabetes medication after concluding the manufacturer was aware of, but did not report, an increased risk of heart damage associated with usage.
- Paxil – After several studies showed that Paxil – a widely-prescribed – antidepressant increases the risk of development of congenital heart defects in newborns, the FDA re-classified the drug as a high-risk during pregnancy.
- Yaz, Yasmin, Beyaz, and Ocella – In 2012 the FDA issued warnings about these popular oral contraceptives after studies showed a much higher risk of dangerous blood clots, deep vein thrombosis, and pulmonary embolism than other birth control pills.
If you are or were prescribed one of these prescription drugs, you could be at risk for the associated side effects that manufacturers failed to report. Your best course of action is to contact a doctor and a defective drug lawyer at Sugarman Law immediately.
