Medications and prescription drugs seem to be a part of everyday life for many people. Our government puts safeguards in place to prevent dangerous or defective drugs from reaching the market, so we don't think twice about taking medications that may cause us harm. If you end up with permanent health problems because of taking a medication, the company that manufactured it or the doctor who prescribed it should be held accountable.
Proper Testing and Analysis Expected
Pharmaceutical companies have a habit of rushing new medications to market with the altruistic belief that they will help people who are suffering, but also with the intense need to make money off of them to cover the costs of research and development as well as to pay their shareholders. Because of this, it can be years before adverse reactions are discovered in patients who have been using these drugs. People who take these drugs, believing they are doing something to help, end up with worse damage to their systems than when they started the prescription or regimen. Examples of problems caused by medications are:
- Heart attack
- Brain damage
- Nerve damage
- Organ damage
- Tissue damage
- Negative drug interactions
In some of these cases, the drug itself is to blame. In others, the doctor doesn't review a patient's full medical record and makes an incorrect prescription.
