It seems as though within a few years, and in some cases a few decades, what was previously seen as a very effective medication for common ailments can overnight be vilified for causing diseases such as cancer, birth defects, bone injuries and increasing the risk of cardiac events in patients taking the medication. A common concern is how or why the drug was approved by the FDA to begin with? As with all big businesses marketshare and profit are what is important. In many cases pharmaceutical manufacturers of meds such as Invokana and other Type 2 diabetes drugs, Zantac, Johnson & Johnson baby powder, HIV preventative meds including Truvada and the weight loss drug Belviq (and Belviq XR) do not disclose the potential for injury or illness to the FDA. And shame on the FDA for not thinking outside the box and demanding thorough research and testing be done prior to approval. If you, or a loved one, have been injured due to a dangerous medication you have rights. You may be able to obtain benefits, medical care and financial compensation for any injuries, cancer treatment, lost wages, diminished quality of life, pain and suffering and other applicable damages.

If you have been the victim of a harmful medication, or your child or spouse has, you have rights and they need to be protected. One of those rights is the right to file a product liability lawsuit against the maker and in some cases (such as opioid addiction lawsuits) you can also file a claim against pharmacies, pharmacists and distributors. CVS, Walgreen’s and Walmart are currently named in opioid lawsuits for filling and facilitating the overprescription of highly addictive opioids including OxyContin, Vicodin, Morphine and Fentanyl.
