Modern medicine is truly a marvel. Illnesses and injuries that were thought to be death sentences only decades ago can now be cured and controlled with a single prescription. There are drugs that help us quit smoking, ease symptoms of depression, keep our skin clear, and cope with anxiety. There are also powerful drugs that help people with painful chronic arthritis, high blood pressure and cholesterol, and a variety of other illnesses live comfortable, happy lives.
When we take prescription—or even over-the-counter—medicines, we trust that the manufacturers have taken care to ensure that it is safe to use as directed. We also trust that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) actively monitors drugs that are on the market, and quickly takes measures to recall the drugs that are harmful.
How Do Defective Drugs End Up in Pharmacies and On the Shelves in Virginia?
By now, most of us know that even simple drugs like acetaminophen can have negative side effects for some users. So when does the FDA make the call to recall a drug?
Because drugs are often rushed to market, some are available to consumers before defects are discovered. The decision to recall comes down to pinpointing when the negative, dangerous side effects outweigh the benefits that the drug has. To get to that point, however, a number of people are often injured—this is when many people contact a Hampton Roads defective drug lawyer.
