While the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) may recall a drug with side effects that have been proven to be negative, this can take a considerable length of time. Errors in preparation on the part of pharmaceutical corporations may also lead to recalls. Pharmaceutical defects can have lasting consequences and may require a patient to undergo continuing medical treatment, rehabilitation and care.
It is challenging to ascertain which pharmaceutical products are safe to use, as some may not have been on the market very long, while others may not have been tested correctly or thoroughly enough. In other cases, pharmaceutical manufacturers may haphazardly and deliberately release a drug into the market that has not been properly tested or has been found to cause substantial health effects.
Generic drug manufacturers may change formulations of previously safe medications, without further testing, causing health issues. Drug manufacturers also attempt to market drugs illegally for “off-label” uses, or purposes other than what they were approved for use, resulting in adverse effects.
Several million dollar settlements with major pharmaceutical companies have resulted in this area over the past few years for drugs such as the following:
- Chantix Enbrel
- Fen Phen
- Levaquin (including Avelox and Cipro)
In situations like these, manufacturers, testing laboratories, pharmaceutical representatives, doctors, hospitals, clinics and pharmacists can all be legally responsible if patients are harmed by defective pharmaceutical products. Mistakes occurring at the manufacturing facility or pharmacy where the drug was made or bottled, problems that occur during shipping, or an error in labeling, may constitute a defective pharmaceutical.
