Dangerous Drugs & Devices
Prescription drugs, over-the-counter medicines, and medical devices are a part of everyday life. More than a few of us have stories to tell about how a particular medicine or surgical implant made life better for us. But all too often it seems that big pharmaceutical companies and device manufacturers are rushing products to market or keeping them available even when there is substantial evidence that people are being injured – or even dying.
Sometimes the manufacturer appears to have slipped something past the Food & Drug Administration (FDA). Other times, the manufacturers push doctors to prescribe medicines where safety studies have never been performed. In some situations, the pharmaceutical company leaves a product on the market even though there are widespread reports that the drug is causing problems. For whatever reason – there are drugs and devices available today, or recently taken off the market, which are causing serious harm to people.
