The Food and Drug Administration is bombarded with dozens of new medications needing approval to enter the pharmaceutical market each year. While the FDA overviews testing procedures and side-effect reports, they do not conduct their own trials. Despite the rigorous testing conducted by pharmaceutical manufacturers, many people are criticizing the approval process because of the dangerous drugs that have slipped by the FDA and been prescribed to the public.
If you have been the victim of a dangerous drug that has caused severe and unexpected side effects, you may be eligible to receive compensation for your losses. Recently, hundreds of women across America have filed suit against the manufacturer of the birth control pills Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella for their serious and dangerous side-effects.
If you have taken these medications and suffered from heart arrhythmia, cardiac arrest, or stroke, you need to speak with a Yaz side-effect attorney today. Contact the lawyers of Williams and Kherkher by calling 800-761-3187 to schedule a free initial consultation.
If enough people suffer the same unexpected side-effects from a prescription drug, the manufacturer will likely issue a recall. When a drug is recalled, anyone who has been prescribed the drug should:
- Immediately stop taking the drug
- Contact their healthcare provider
- Get evaluated for symptoms of potential side-effects
- Return the medication to their local pharmacy so that it may be properly disposed of
