We count on medicines to do many things. We expect them to heal us, control our pain, and keep us healthy. We don’t expect them to make us sick or, even worse, put our lives in jeopardy. And yet, that’s exactly what happens with some drugs. They may have life-altering side effects, cause debilitating illnesses, or even lead to death.
A few of the drugs believed to have serious negative effects on some patients taking them include: Xarelto, Viagra, Risperdal, Zofran, Testosterone therapy, and Diabetes drugs such as Actos and Duetact.
Too often, these serious, and even deadly, side effects appear to have been avoidable. Sometimes, approval for drugs appears rushed and serious side effects are overlooked. Other times, drug manufacturers have been found guilty of criminal charges in concealing information related to the adverse reactions linked to their drug. Some drug manufacturers have already set aside billions of dollars to compensate victims.
