Norfolk Injury Lawyer Produces Video About The Dangers of Prescribed Drug Actos
I have written about the danger of the prescription drug Actos on a number of occasions. In a new video I warn of the “terrible” potential consequences of taking the drug that include bladder cancer.
The drug is used to treat diabetes. Many diabetics in the Norfolk and Virginia Beach area have used it, not fully aware of the severe dangers. I am presently representing clients who have been hurt by this drug.
This is not the only dangerous prescription medication out there. I have seen terrible side effects caused by the birth control drug Yaz and the blood thinner Pradaxa, to name just two others.
The drug companies keep pumping out these dangerous drugs even though there are known consequences. They are more interested in the vast amount of money they are making than the risks.
Once these drug companies get approval for their drugs from the FDA, they simply aren’t bothered about finding out about the side effects.
In the case of Actos the lawsuits are mounting against the manufacturer Takeda Pharmaceuticals. Despite the known side effect based on painstaking research the FDA has approved a generic version of Actos.
If you have been harmed by a dangerous drug you should contact a Norfolk injury lawyer for a free consultation.
