Side Effects of Dangerous Medications

National Pharmaceutical Injury Lawyers for Victims & Families

If you or a loved one has been injured by prescription or over-the-counter drugs, you deserve legal advocacy. At least 200,000 Americans suffer severe side effects caused by medications every year in the United States, and 100,000 lose their lives. Pharmaceutical injury and error is a serious matter. For the well-being and safety of consumers, it is important that pharmaceutical companies go to great lengths to provide safe and effective medications. Unfortunately, the benefit does not always outweigh the risk. Doctors and other healthcare professionals should be told about the dangers so they can disclose them to their patients and allow the individuals they are treating to make an informed decision.

Understanding Side Effects of Medications

Some side effects are minor and not life-threatening, such as slight nausea, constipation, soreness, sleepiness, or dizziness. These side effects, while unpleasant, do not necessarily constitute a serious threat to health, and their benefits in abating or curing a severe medical condition could outweigh these uncomfortable symptoms. In many cases, these side effects are clearly spelled out in the packaging of the medication. At other times, however, medication side effects can be severe and even life threatening. Serious side effects of medications include:

  • Cancer, including uterine or bladder cancer
  • Stroke
  • Gastrointestinal bleeding
  • Growth of male breasts
  • Diabetes
  • Heart conditions, including heart failure, heart attacks, and cardiomyopathy
  • Physical deformity or debilitation
