Patients should be given information about dangerous drugs

You've probably heard news stories about serious problems with many medications. For example, there is a risk of amputation that comes with Invokana. Pharmaceutical companies have a duty to ensure that the drugs they put on the market are safe. When they don't, the patients are the ones who suffer harm while the executives of the drug companies can go home without concern for their health at the end of the day.

We know that most people trust their doctors to make decisions that benefit the patient. Still, it is important that all patients ask questions that can help them to determine exactly what problems might manifest from the medications. It is imperative that all patients understand the potential side effects of the drugs they're prescribed.

The side effects of drugs on the market can range from minor irritants like dry mouth to serious injuries up to and including death. No patient should have to deal with those major issues just because they are trying to better their health.

Drug manufacturers are required to report the potential side effects of a given medication during the approval process. If they miss some side effects or don't report them as they should, all patients are at risk because they aren't able to make decisions about their health care that is based on full disclosures and comprehensive information.

If you were harmed by a medication, we are here to help you evaluate your options. There is a chance that the issue you are having is part of a mass tort lawsuit or investigation. If this is the case, we can look into those and decide if they will provide a suitable resolution to your case or if you want to pursue other options.
