There have been numerous instances where defective drugs have been recalled and taken off the market – and many cases where both prescription and over-the-counter drugs have caused injuries, caused either by a defect in the drug or insufficient warnings.

It is the responsibility of drug manufacturers to not only ensure that the product is safe, but to include any potential drug side effects on the label to ensure that customers are fully aware of any product risks.

Dangerous drugs have caused severe side effects and injuries in hundreds of thousands of patients, and have been associated with birth defects, strokes, blood clotting problems, heart attacks and even death. Although some of these dangerous drugs have been recalled, there are others still on the market which can cause serious and life-threatening injuries. Dangerous drugs include the following:

  • Invokana
  • Xarelto
  • Zofran, Zuplenz and Ondansetron
  • Paxil
  • Zoloft
