Some medications have such adverse side effects they become known as dangerous drugs. Dangerous drugs can include prescription medications or over-the-counter pills. They can be prescribed by your doctor and provided by a pharmacist but still cause serious — even fatal — injury. When this happens to you or a loved one, you need experienced dangerous drug lawyers to help you recover damages for your suffering.
Three Key Facts About Dangerous Drugs to Keep in Mind
- The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has only limited power to prevent an approved drug from being sold; frequently, it can only issue warnings to doctors—and those alerts may not be communicated well to patients.
- Drug manufacturers will rarely issue voluntary recalls of their own products unless there's evidence of a manufacturing defect. The profit motive is too great to recall a drug if only a few people are hurt, even if they are injured very badly.
- Drug sales cross state lines, so state regulators in Kansas and Missouri have very little power to block the sale of dangerous pharmaceuticals.
