PRESCRIPTION DRUGS – SIDE EFFECTS
Modern medicine offers a wide variety of prescription drugs that enhance health and extend life. But what happens if some drugs do more harm than good? The global pharmaceutical industry brings in $744 billion each year and is dominated by ten large drug companies that control a third of the market.
Drug companies have the responsibility of delivering safe products and issuing warnings about potential risks. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case. Complications from prescription drugs put all of us in danger, and Fieger Law wants to hold big pharma accountable when getting you much-deserved justice.
CLASS ACTION & CIVIL SUITS
Pharmaceutical companies are the subject of numerous class action and civil suits for drugs like Prilosec, Lipitor, and even antibiotics for the common earache. These are drugs you and your loved ones likely have in your medicine cabinet right now.
Fieger Law is not afraid to tackle the effort required to bring these big companies to justice. With more than 165 verdicts and settlements of $1 million or more, we know what it takes to go to trial and win. And, we care.
Prescription Drugs – Fieger Law Practice Areas
You might be surprised at the long list of prescription drugs linked to serious and even fatal conditions. Here are a few we have our eye on at Fieger Law:
SGLT2 Inhibitors/Invokana: Manufacturers of Type 2 Diabetes drugs like Invokana, designed to reduce blood glucose, are facing lawsuits for failure to warn patients about serious and potentially fatal side effects like Fournier’s Gangrene. This condition is a flesh-eating bacterial infection found in the genital area.
Belviq – Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Belviq is a diet pill prescribed for those with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or higher. Many cancers, however, have been linked to Belviq usage, including pancreatic cancer, colorectal cancer and lung cancer.
Elmiron – The drug Elmiron is used to treat Interstitial Cystitis, an issue within the urinary tract system that can lead to pain in the abdominal and pelvic regions. When a patient uses Elmiron long term, there is a risk of vision loss or blindness.
Heartburn Drug cases – Drugs, such as Dexilant, Nexium, Prevacid, Prilosec, Protonix and Zegerid, are commonly taken to prevent heartburn. But concerns are mounting that they may cause dementia, kidney disease and other problems like intestinal infections, bone fractures, low magnesium levels and more.
Valsartan – From 1996 to 2018, the drug Valsartan was approved by the FDA to treat high blood pressure. However, this drug has been recalled for its relationship with certain cancers, including stomach cancer, liver cancer, and bladder cancer.
Zantac/Ranitidine – In 2019, the FDA issued a statement that Zantac and the generic form of this drug, Ranitidine, may contain a human carcinogen called N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA). Common cancers linked to Zantac usage include bladder cancer, esophageal cancer, kidney cancer, liver cancer, and thyroid cancer, among others.
Beovu – Beovu is an injection prescribed to treat wet age-related macular degeneration and prevent blurry eyesight and blind spots. Unfortunately, some Beovu patients are experiencing distorted and/or lost vision, and even total and permanent blindness after receiving the injection.
