3 reasons dangerous drugs are taken off the market

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) may pull a pharmaceutical drug off the market after it has been revealed that a medication is dangerous. Unfortunately, these efforts -- although they may be essential to saving many lives and preventing many injuries -- could come too late. In fact, it's not uncommon for many people to get hurt before regulators become aware of the dangers of a drug that previously passed FDA approval to be sold on the market.

Depakote: What you should know about this drug

Numerous potentially dangerous drugs are on the market and being prescribed to patients in Texas and throughout the country. One of these drugs is Depakote. Depakote is prescribed as an anticonvulsant and mood stabilizer. Individuals suffering from bipolar syndrome, epilepsy, manic depression and migraine typically receive prescriptions for this medication.

2 dangerous drugs you probably didn't know about

Many Texas residents are surprised to learn that FDA-approved drugs are sometimes extremely dangerous. In fact, there are numerous drugs on the market right now -- that your doctor could prescribe you -- which pose a serious risk to your health. This article will take a look at two under-the-radar dangerous drugs, that a lot of people don't know pose a risk to their health.

Drug liability: The duty to warn

As you can imagine, there are a lot of dangerous pharmaceutical drugs on the market right now. In most cases, the dangers associated with these drugs can be limited and patients will be aware of the risks they're taking when they consume the medication. However, in other cases, drug manufacturers fail to warn patients of the risks they face when taking their drugs. When a drug company fails to warn like this, it could leave the drug maker financially liable for injuries that result.

Pharmaceutical Litigation: All about drug recalls

It is in the best interests of pharmaceutical manufacturers to deliver safe, high-quality medications. However, sometimes unforeseen problems arise with drugs despite rigorous testing. When this happens, drug companies may issue a recall to keep the public safe and to avoid becoming a target in pharmaceutical litigation. Drug recalls happen quite often, although most residents of Texas do not hear about every one of these recalls.

Study suggests post-approval safety problems come up for many drugs

A drug receiving approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration doesn’t mean that no new safety issues will come up regarding the drug after its release. In fact, a recent study indicates that post-release safety problems are actually pretty common among FDA-approved medications.
