In the United States, the pharmaceutical industry is extremely competitive, causing drug manufacturers to aggressively market their products, and focus on profits and numbers instead of on the possible problems and side effects of their products.
Every year, there are approximately 2,000 fatalities resulting from adverse reactions and harmful side effects to prescription drugs and medication. Unfortunately, victims of these bad prescription drugs must first become ill or even die before recalls are announced.
Under North Carolina and federal law, health providers and drug manufacturers are responsible for all medical devices, medications and drugs that are considered unsafe. Examples are pharmaceuticals that are improperly or incorrectly designed, produced, packaged, labeled, or inspected. Health providers and drug manufacturers may also be considered responsible for failing to warn the public of the dangers or potential side effects that may stem from using or consuming a specific drug.
Over the past few years, some drugs that are known to have caused controversy and lawsuits in the industry are Accutane, Rezulin, Yaz-Yasmin, Chantix, Baycol, Meridia, Oxycontin, Paxil, Celebrex, Avandia, Serzone, Propulsid and others.
