Prescription Drugs On The Market
When doctors prescribe medicine, you hope it will allow you to recover from an illness or treat your medical condition. However, some drugs have dangerous side effects that outweigh the benefits.
Dangerous drugs with life-altering side effects may make it to the pharmaceutical market because their potential dangers were not anticipated during clinical trials. Sometimes drug manufacturers hide, ignore or minimize evidence of unreasonable risks during clinical trial research. Drugs with known, or hidden, dangers not properly disclosed to consumers may be classified as defective products.
In America, prescription drugs have as much as $289 billion in annual sales. This makes the United States the world’s largest drug purchaser. The U.S. accounts for almost half of the $643 billion in yearly drug sales worldwide.
Drugs and medications are products, and while not all prescription drugs are dangerous, many are. Such drugs can cause a variety of side effects, injuries or even deaths.
Drug Side Effects
Drug side effects can cover a wide range, from mild discomforts to diseases and death. Other side effects may include birth defects in children caused by pregnant women taking prescribed medicines during pregnancy or life-altering injuries that permanently effect a person’s quality of life.
Defective drug side effects may include:
- Birth Defects
- Liver Problems
- Kidney Problems
- Heart Problems
- Bladder Problems
- Internal Bleeding
- Brain Injury
- Uterine Problems
- Lung Problems
- Neurological Dysfunction
- Muscle Damage
- Nerve Damage
- Gastrointestinal Tract Problems
Recalls can come from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or voluntarily by the drug makers themselves. Product recalls can be initiated for a variety of reasons:
- When a drug is determined to be a health hazard and dangerous to the consumers.
- A drug may be recalled if it is mislabeled or packaged poorly.
- If the drug is potentially contaminated or contained prohibited ingredients.
- Some are removed for inaccurate or improper warnings.
- Recalled due to misuse by consumers.
- Recalled due to manufacturing defects when a drug or device is poorly manufactured.
- Recalled due to mixing errors in the drug’s formulation.
Pharmaceutical drugs and medical devices may be taken off the market permanently, or other times a recall is initiated to correct labeling, instructions or to add new safety warnings.
