Defective Drugs can Cause Permanent, Life-Altering Illness or Injury

When a doctor prescribes medication to help a medical disease or condition, we trust that the product will help. So it becomes a nightmare when a drug, either because of inadequate side effect warnings, incomplete or inaccurate directions for use or because it shouldn't have been on the market at all, causes serious injury, illness or even death.

Have you or a family member taken any of the following drugs? Taking these medications is linked with serious side effects and can even be fatal:

Actos - Doctors prescribe this medication for individuals with Type II diabetes to help control blood sugar levels. Taking Actos comes with an increased risk of bladder cancer. The manufacturer Takeda Pharmaceuticals can be held liable for injuries and damages because of inadequate warnings of this risk along with other potential associated medical problems.

Granuflo - This drug is administered to patients with kidney failure during dialysis to reduce a build-up of acid in the blood. Granuflo produces bicarbonate as a buffer against the acid; however, if the dosage is not properly calculated, there may be too much bicarbonate produced which can cause serious health problems including heart attack, stroke and/or sudden death.

Yaz or Yasmin - This oral contraceptive drug has been linked to many serious side effects including a higher risk of blood clots. Blood clots can cause deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism and sudden death. Other dangerous side effects include a higher risk of stroke and heart attack.

Zoloft - This medication is one of the most highly prescribed anti-depressants in the U.S. However, it has been found to cause serious and permanent birth defects when taken by pregnant women. Some of these defects include spina bifida, cleft palate or lip, club foot or brain damage.
