Suffered an Injury Due to a Prescription Drug?
There are many different kinds of prescription medications that are in use throughout the United States today. Some of these work efficiently with little side effects and help to alleviate pain or other symptoms. Some of these medications, however, provide little benefit with a high risk of suffering from various side effects. When you are prescribed a medication and you suffer severely from the side effects then you may be entitled to collect damages for the suffering you have endured.
Case Example: Dangerous Effects of Actos
One dangerous drug is Pioglitazone, brand name Actos. This is a prescription drug that is used to treat type two diabetes in many cases. This drug works to make the body more sensitive to insulin; however, there can be other severe side effects that result from the consumption of this drug. Some common side effects include headaches, muscle pain, sore throat and many others. Some of the severe and dangerous side effects may include changes in vision or vision loss, frequent, painful and even bloody urination, as well as back and/or abdominal pain.
