Most people assume that if they buy a drug over the counter, or take one prescribed by their physician, that the drug is safe. That is not always true.
The FDA screens drugs before they are released to the public, but dangerous side effects sometimes become apparent months or years after the drugs have been approved. A drug recall may be the end result.
Common drug side-effects
Heart and circulatory system complications
Primary pulmonary hypertension
Aside from the manufacturer of the drug itself, other parties could also be liable, such as:
If a drug has dangerous side effects, it is the responsibility of the manufacturer to inform the medical community, and it’s the responsibility of the medical community to inform their patients. Thus, a claim can be made if you, the end-user of the drug, were not properly informed about the drugs you have been prescribed.
Drug companies are required to rigorously test the drugs they manufacture for dangerous complications and side effects. If they fail to do so, and those drugs end up causing injury, you may be able to file a claim against the manufacturer.
