When prescribed a drug by your doctor, you naturally assume that the medicine will alleviate a condition or help you recover from an illness. You don’t expect that drug to be dangerous or to cause you serious injury or irreversible harm. Dangerous drugs can cause devastating, permanent injuries, and even wrongful death.
Despite the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) having strict requirements in place to regulate drug safety, sometimes medicines are released to the public that put thousands—if not millions—of unsuspecting patients at risk. All too often, in a race to get drugs to market and generate immediate profits, pharmaceutical companies fail to properly test and evaluate the safety of their new products. This includes failing to adequately research potentially adverse reactions and complications caused through drug interactions with other medicines and devices.
