The Importance Of Heeding Drug Recalls

Medical researchers at universities and research institutes conduct many studies each year concerning certain prescription drugs’ potential risks. Later, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) continually reviews these drug studies. As a result, it issues warnings concerning pharmaceutical drugs with harmful side effects as well as drug recall notices.
If you have taken drugs that have later been recalled and have been harmed by them – or may have been harmed by them – it is always wise to consult with an experienced product liability law firm. At Galligan Law in Des Moines, we make it a priority to stay up to date on drug recalls, related litigation and pathways to recovery for our clients who have paid the price for manufacturers’ wrongdoing.

Drug Recalls And Reactions To Medications – Such As Addiction – That May Be Relevant To Your Case

Doctors prescribe medicine for weight loss, pain relief and more. However, some prescription medications are actually very harmful drugs with an increased risk of side effects. Heart attacks, brain damage and many other side effects can be risks of understudied pharmaceuticals. 

Pain medications are now recognized as highly addictive and these overprescribed dangerous opioids have become the cause of many overdose deaths. Drugs that were once considered safe and effective, pain killers continue to cause more health concerns than those that they solve. People who take these drugs long-term will likely require addiction treatment and even hospitalization. If this trend has affected you personally or if your family lost a family member to overdosing on opioids such as Fentanyl or OxyContin, contact our Des Moines law firm for legal advice.

We will gladly go over this list with you as you consider medications you have taken and side effects you have dealt with – or if you are concerned about the safety of drugs you have taken.

We can help you sort through this list of dangerous drugs based on the health dangers they may have posed to you.
