Who Is Responsible For Mislabeled Medications And What Can You Do About It?

by admin on April 15, 2010

Do you think that a if a pharmaceutical company knowingly fails to disclose information about the potential hazards that you could face if you take their medications should pay you if you have suffered as a result? A lot of people who have suffered potentially life threatening side effects from taking an improperly labeled drug feel the company responsible for their misery should make restitution.

If you find yourself in this situation and you are considering getting involved in a lawsuit then you will want to read this article.

Some Oral Contraceptives Can Be More Harmful Than Others

Although there is risk inherent in taking any type of medication, some pharmaceuticals, and some specific types of oral contraceptives in particular, can potentially do you much more harm than good. Some birth control pills contain drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol as their primary ingredients.

It turns out that drospirenone has been known to elevate the body’s potassium levels. This can lead to a condition known as hyperkalemia in certain patients. If the symptoms are extreme hyperkalemia is considered to be a medical emergency because there is a risk of arrhythmia, which are potentially fatal and abnormal heart rhythms.

And that’s only one of the problems associated with these oral contraceptives. Women have also suffered from migraines, difficulty breathing, general feelings of discomfort, tightness in their chests, and more. As a result, solely as a consequence of taking this medication, many women have had to have been hospitalized.

Consequently hospital bills started piling up. This unexpected dire financial situation has been compounded in many cases with lost salaries and other issues that were directly related to misrepresented and inadequately labeled medication. I don’t know about you, but I think that the people responsible should pay for the pain and suffering they caused.

After all, these drug companies appear to be huge conglomerates whose main goal is to make a buck. Their neglectfulness, in the name of profit, was the cause of getting you into the situation you’re in. They called the tune so they should pay the piper.

Law firms across the country agree with this premise and they would be happy to help you to get the justice due you. Nothing, of course can replace good health. However financial remuneration can make your life a bit easier. Then you would be able to focus on getting better rather than having to worry about where to get the money to pay your medical bills and other expenses.

If you know that you have suffered because of these medications or if you are just beginning to get the symptoms associated with them then don’t you think you owe it to yourself to investigate the possibilities? I sure do.
