Millions of Americans take prescription drugs every year. We take prescription drugs for blood pressure; for diabetes; for allergies; for depression - pharmaceutical companies have created a variety of drugs to cure many ills and illnesses. Unfortunately, sometimes these prescription drugs don't simply solve a medical problem; on some occasions, they actually create new problems. The prescription drugs that Americans and Mississippians take every single day can actually cause long-term health complications, or even death. When this happens, it's time to get an experienced prescription drug attorney involved.
If you have become sick, or if a family member of loved one has passed away while using a prescription drug such as Vioxx, Reglan, Levaquin, Celebrex, Bextra, Ortho Evra, Ketek, Advair, or Serevent, you may be entitled to compensation by way of a defective drug product liability claim or lawsuit
Pharmaceutical Companies are Out to Make Money
Major pharmaceutical companies don't make prescription medications out of the goodness of their hearts; they're in it to make money. Pharmaceutical companies make billions of dollars every year on the drugs they sell to unsuspecting American citizens. In some cases, they've rushed the drugs out the doors without following proper testing protocols, or minimizing negative test results just to pass the drugs. The FDA has come under fire for passing drugs that are harmful to the people who take them, but the pharmaceutical companies who rush the process or ignore the negative indicators are the real culprits.
Common Prescription Drug Injuries in Jackson and the Surrounding Areas
In the past few years, several major prescription drug recalls have made the news, including: ReNu Moistureloc, Avandia, Vioxx, Celebrex, Bextra, Ortho Evra, Ketek, Advair, Serevent, Ephedra, Oxycontin, and many more. These medications have caused everything from severe fungal infections to addiction to tendonitis and Achilles tendon rupture to death. And it's not just prescription drugs that cause problems; some pharmaceutical companies have had to recall medical devices and implants that have proven to be dangerous.
In addition, our firm is currently reviewing cases where injuries were caused by the following drugs:
REGLAN: a drug intended for short term use and treatment of gastrointestinal disease/gastroesophageal reflux. It is linked to Tardive Dyskinesia -a very serious and often irreversible movement disorder. A Black Box warning was mandated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for this drug.
LEVAQUIN: a drug intended for short terms use and treatment of bacterial infections, including infections of the urinary tract, sinuses, lungs and skin. It is linked to tendon rupture (i.e., completely torn tendons) and tendonitis, irreversible peripheral neuropathy, and hepatoxicity, among other things. A Black Box warning was mandated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for this drug.
