Dangerous Drugs

When a qualified doctor prescribes you a medication, you believe that the drug will make you feel better. Unfortunately, sometimes drug manufacturers, doctors, and even the Food & Drug Administration fall short in their duties and bad drugs enter the marketplace. When drugs possess previously unknown side effects, they can cause patients all sorts of medical problems, at times even worse than the condition the drug was supposed to be treating. In some cases, patients end up paying with their lives.

If you or a loved one has suffered due to a bad drug, it is important to know that you may be due compensation; however, seeking justice may be an uphill battle. Drug manufacturers, doctors, and government agencies employ armies of lawyers. You will be outnumbered and outgunned if you try to seek compensation on your own.

Below are some of the most infamous bad drugs, but the list is not comprehensive. Goldberg & Osborne can help you no matter what bad drug you have been prescribed:

Actos

Actos, which is the brand name for pioglitazone, is meant to treat Type II diabetes, but recent studies have found that it may increase a patient’s risk for bladder cancer. Although medical studies are still ongoing, many long-term Actos patients were at a 40-percent higher risk for bladder cancer, and this risk was further increased in patients with a history of bladder cancer.

Bextra

Used to treat symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis, Bextra is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). Bextra has been linked to an increased risk for cardiovascular problems, including stroke and heart attack. The drug was removed from the market in 2005, but only after thousands of patients had taken Bextra.

Anti-Depressants

While anti-depressant drugs are meant to help individuals who suffer from mild-to-severe depressive symptoms, some of these drugs actually worsen the condition in certain patients. This can lead to suicidal thoughts or actions, behavioral changes, risk-taking activity, and other dangerous side effects. Some anti-depressants affect levels of the neurotransmitters serotonin and norepinephrine. The effects of anti-depressants may last for months or even years.
