Pharmaceutical Litigation Attorneys     

Dangerous Prescription Drugs

With the passage of the Prescription Drug User Fee Act administered by the Food and Drug Administration, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) began placing many pharmaceutical drugs on a fast-track to approval. In addition, rules have been relaxed allowing pharmaceuticals companies to advertise directly to consumers. The faster the drugs enter the marketplace, the less time drug companies and government officials have to fully investigate the side effects of consuming the drugs.

While pharmaceutical manufacturers have garnered increasing profits for their drugs, consumer safety has proportionally decreased. The combination of many new pharmaceuticals and over-the-counter drugs with fast approval has significantly increased the number of serious injuries to consumers.  This has lead to increased numbers of dangerous drugs such as Vioxx, Bextra, Celebrex, Crestor, and Zocor, being prescribed to millions of Americans.
