There are many drugs that are put on the market that are later found to have caused serious injury, illness or even loss of life after use by an innocent victim. When you are prescribed a drug, it is assumed that proper testing has proven it safe to use. There are usually side effects to any drug, and these must be properly exposed in warnings. There are many cases in which the drug in question is later discovered to have very serious physical or mental side effects that were not initially known, and innocent people, hoping to improve a medical condition, take the dangerous drug and then suffer a serious unpredicted medical condition.
Some of the drugs that have caused serious injury or death recently include SSRIs, Fosamax, Yaz / Yasmin, and HRT, all of which have been found to have very serious and even fatal side effects. There are a number of pending lawsuits against Merck & Co. with regard to this drug, and the claim that they failed to expose some of the serious potential side effects, including a condition called ONJ, with vast and permanent injury to the victim. The same is true of HRT, and the drug company Wyeth is fighting various legal battles regarding the serious and dangerous side effects of their Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) drug and breast cancer, stroke, blood clots and heart disease.
