You may wonder why the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) allows dangerous drugs to enter the market. Isn’t it their job to keep dangerous drugs off the market? The answer is yes, but it is not that simple.
Often when a drug is tested by a drug manufacturer, the group of people taking the drug during its trials is not from a large sample of the population, so serious side effects may go unnoticed by the manufacturer. What often happens is that after the drug is on the market and many people have taken it, some adverse reactions can start being reported by doctors, who have prescribed the drug. At this time, the drug company may need to change the warning label, but sometimes it is better for their sales to just look the other way.
Also, it is common that a drug can become approved for one disease and the drug company may decide to convince doctors to prescribe the drug for another disease, or off label use. Unfortunately, drug companies are large and often very wealthy corporations that are sometimes more concerned about their profits than they are about the people who take their drugs.
The FDA (Food and Drug Administration)
The FDA is an agency of the US Department of Health and Human Services. The FDA regulates food, dietary supplements, drugs, cosmetics, medical devices, biologics, and blood products. In regards to drugs, the FDA can either approve or reject drugs that manufacturers market, and must screen for the dangerous side effects of drugs.
The FDA is also responsible for monitoring drug safety. Over the last 10 years, there have been numerous lawsuits against drug manufacturers despite the FDA’s screening and approval process. With the increase in the use of prescription drugs and the dangerous risks they could cause, it is important for individuals to know their rights.
Please Speak With Your Doctor Before Discontinuing the Use of Any Prescription Drugs.
A RI Dangerous Drug Lawyer can determine whether the drug you have taken is one where you can get compensated for. If a drug has caused you to sustain a serious injury, you may have a claim and/or lawsuit against the drug’s manufacturer. In most instances, a person injured from a defective or dangerous drug will be able to collect for medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering. If a loved one has died as a result of a dangerous drug then the survivors may have a wrongful death claim and could be entitled to compensation for the loss of their loved one.
