Dangerous Prescription Drugs
Prescription medications have the power to treat serious medical conditions, but they can also cause dangerous side effects. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) imposes strict safety requirements for the manufacture and sale of all prescription drugs. Unfortunately, drug manufacturers do not always follow the strict guidelines set forth by the FDA.
All medications, even those that are sold without a prescription, have the potential to cause serious harm if they are released to the public without proper safety testing. When drug manufacturers sell prescription medications that did not undergo the proper safety testing, or fail to disclose potential side-effects, they put the health and safety of millions of Americans at risk.
Patients depend on their doctors, as well as the FDA to determine whether or not certain medications can safely and effectively treat their medical conditions. If medications are defective do not go through the proper safety testing protocols, it can result in catastrophic injuries, and even death.
