Drugs That Have Proven Faulty
Drug injuries can follow from use of any type of drug, such as:
- Cholesterol-lowering drugs like Crestor
- Drugs used to treat diabetes, such as Actos, Avandia, Byetta, and Januvia
- Acne drugs such as Accutane
- Epilepsy and anti-seizure drugs such as Depakote
- Drugs used to treat osteoporosis, such as Fosamax
- Antidepressants, such as Paxil and Prozac
- Over-the-counter drugs such as Tylenol, which can cause liver failure
Injuries, health damage, and wrongful death can follow continued use of dangerous drugs because effects of long-term use are often unknown. Only after adverse reaction reports involving injuries and deaths are submitted to the FDA do these dangerous side effects come to light. FDA black-box warnings and drug recalls may often take place long after unsuspecting victims have developed various injuries which can range from heart attacks and strokes to kidney or liver damage, muscle weakness, birth defects in their newborns, Type 2 diabetes, or other severe side effects. In such cases, drug manufacturers may be found to have been negligent in various ways, from failing to warn consumers about the dangers of their products to promoting such products for off-label use to deliberately suppressing known information about side effects. Every year, additional recalls and warnings are issued by the FDA. Drugwatch.com provides continuing information for the public about the recalls of medical devices as well as prescription drugs.
