There are a number of FDA approved medications that have been recalled, or FDA warning letters have been posted about possible side effects. These drugs include Yaz, Yasmin, Xanax, blood pressure medicines containing asiskiren, birth control medications containing drospirenone, the drugs Celexa, Avandia and many other types of medications that have been found have specific risks to patients. If you or a loved one has suffered serious side effects, a medical condition or illness, or has died due to the use of a drug, whether a prescribed or over the counter medication, a West Virginia attorney from Mani Ellis & Layne, PLLC should be contacted immediately.
In recent years, there has been a great increase of medications that have been corrupted or contain ingredients that could endanger the patient. Some medications are now manufactured overseas where the processes may be less carefully overseen, and innocent patients can pay the price. In some cases, drugs have been used on patients that were counterfeit, even by respected medical treatment facilities. All of these issues are of extreme concern; an innocent person can suffer serious physical complications or lose their lives, never knowing that the damage is the result of a dangerous drug.
