Drogas peligrosas

Many Americans take at least one over-the-counter medication or prescription drug. While medications are safe for some people, those same drugs can be dangerous for others. Dangerous drugs can be deemed defective for many reasons, but not all dangerous drugs are recalled. With recalls, a drug can be deemed dangerous or defective for all patients. At Loncar Lyon Jenkins, our product liability lawyers fight to ensure medical professionals and pharmaceutical companies are held responsible when their conduct causes harm to patients.

Types of Dangerous Drugs

We trust medical professionals to prescribe medication that’s safe and effective. However, doctors don’t have time to study every drug. They may be given a sales pitch that conceals a medication’s negative effects. When a medication is not fully understood a patient in need may be put at a risk of potentially severe adverse effects. 
Types of medications that can cause serious health consequences include:

Opioid Painkillers

Opioid painkillers, both prescription and OTC, have been the subject of numerous class action lawsuits due to their addictive nature and the role they have played in the opioid epidemic. Pharmaceutical companies, distributors, and retailers have faced legal action alleging deceptive marketing practices, failure to warn about the risks of addiction and overdose, and improper distribution of prescription opioids.

Antidepressants

Certain antidepressant medications, particularly selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, also known as SSRIs, have been associated with increased risks of suicidal thoughts and behaviors, particularly in young adults and adolescents. Class action lawsuits have been filed against pharmaceutical companies alleging that they failed to adequately warn about these risks or misrepresented the safety of their antidepressant drugs.

Antipsychotic Medication

Some antipsychotic medications have been linked to serious side effects, including weight gain, diabetes, and movement disorders. Class action lawsuits have been filed against pharmaceutical companies alleging that they failed to disclose these risks or engaged in off-label marketing of their antipsychotic drugs for unapproved uses.

Heartburn Medications

Certain heartburn medications, such as proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), have been associated with an increased risk of kidney disease, kidney failure, and other adverse effects. Class action lawsuits have been filed against manufacturers of PPIs alleging that they failed to adequately warn consumers about these risks or misrepresented the safety of their products.

Blood Thinners

Blood thinning medications, such as Xarelto and Pradaxa, have been subject to class action lawsuits alleging that they caused severe bleeding events and other complications. Plaintiffs have claimed that pharmaceutical companies failed to provide adequate warnings about the risks associated with these medications or withheld important safety information.

Diabetes Medications

Certain diabetes medications, such as Actos (pioglitazone), have been linked to an increased risk of bladder cancer and other serious side effects. Class action lawsuits have been filed against pharmaceutical companies alleging that they failed to warn consumers about these risks or improperly marketed their diabetes drugs.
