Prescription medications are meant to alleviate our health conditions. Our Columbia dangerous drugs attorney is aware that some patients take prescribed medication only to suffer dangerous or harmful adverse reactions. Under South Carolina law, any person who experiences these side effects has the right to file for compensation. Auger & Auger is prepared to take up your fight because we don’t believe that any person should suffer after following a doctor’s orders.
When you are feeling under the weather, you call your medical care provider. You may be diagnosed with a fleeting illness or a more serious condition. If your doctor writes a prescription, you have it filled without worry, assuming that the medication has been properly tested prior to its release and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has followed established protocols. In most cases, you are correct. Sometimes you are not.
Our Columbia dangerous drugs attorney division represents patients who have been harmed by specific medications. We’ve advocated for people who have taken Eliquis®, Risperdal®, Testosterone®, and Xarelto®. The team at Auger & Auger is in current litigation due to certain Type 2 Diabetes drugs: Invokana®, Invokamet®, Farxiga®, Jardiance®, and Xigduo® XR.
We know that a loophole in the FDA approval process allows dangerous drugs to be introduced to the market. Products that are considered “substantially similar” to those already released can be put in the hands of patients without comprehensive testing. If a dangerous medication has yet to be recalled, others that prove to cause the same or similar complications can be released thanks to this approval rule.
Some side effects are mentioned on the labels when taking a prescribed medication, but they should always be brought to the attention of your doctor. The situation could be more serious if you are taking any of the medications we’ve listed. Some of the reactions you may experience are:
Any person who is prescribed medication should read physician and patient alerts on the FDA’s website. The list tells you which medications are subject to a special alert or have been recalled. If you find your medication there, phone your doctor or pharmacist for guidance.
