Women who were pregnant and prone to seizures would take this medication to prevent seizures during pregnancy and causing harm to their fetus. Sadly, the drug itself would soon be connected to birth defects.

It is sad reality that many pharmaceuticals and medical devices have been linked to adverse and even deadly consequences. Both prescription and over-the-counter drugs can cause serious injuries to unsuspecting consumers. We trust drug manufacturers to design drugs that can help us, not cause us harm. If you took a medication that caused you injuries, you have the right to collect compensation from the negligent party.

Defective Drugs

When a medication is introduced into the marketplace, every side effect and potential adverse reaction is not always known. Regardless of the testing a new pharmaceutical may undergo, certain side effects can still surface months, even years after the drug is used by thousands of consumers. When the side effect threatens your health, the outcome can be devastating. There are a number of medications that have turned out to be dangerous; some of the most common include:

  • The birth control pills Yaz and Yasmin
  • The psychiatric medications Paxil and Zyprexa
  • The anti-inflammatory drugs Vioxx and Celebrex (anti-inflammatory)
  • The acne medication Accutane®
  • The diet pills Fen-Phen and Ephedra
  • The cholesterol medications Baycol and Crestor
  • The anti-convulsant Dilantin

The Food and Drug Administration

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approves drugs that it determines are safe for consumer use. However, sometimes a medical problem associated with a specific drug is not discovered for years, or even decades. If the FDA receives reports of consumers developing related health conditions after taking a certain medication, it often requires the drug manufacturer to issue a “black box warning” to warn the public about possible adverse side effects. If people continue becoming sick or die because of a drug, the FDA may issue a drug recall, requiring the medication to be removed from the marketplace.
