Defective Drugs

Pursuing Justice for New Yorkers Injured by Dangerous Drugs

Dangerous drugs hit the market every day. In an effort to start making money on their products, pharmaceutical giants and drug manufactures often rush Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approvals and starting marketing drugs without fully evaluating potential side effects. This rush to market means that each year, thousands of consumers are injured by dangerous drugs.

At Trolman, Glaser & Lichtman, P.C., in New York City, we work with an experienced team in investigating and prosecuting wrongful death and injury claims caused by prescription drugs, supplements and over-the-counter remedies.

Drugs With Serious Side Effects

Millions of people throughout the U.S. use over-the-counter (OTC) medications and prescription drugs on a regular basis. Drugs may be taken to regulate diabetes, prevent depression or pregnancy, stop smoking, or treat infections and other conditions. Regardless of why someone is taking medication, the expectation is that it will help him or her. Unfortunately, as evidenced by the increasing number of drug recalls in recent years, many of these medications are turning out to have dangerous side effects and serious health consequences.

Drugs with known side effects and health risks include:

  • Medications treating specific conditions, such as Accutane (acne), Avandia (diabetes), Crestor (cholesterol), Fen-Phen (obesity), Reglan (heartburn and gas) and Fosamax (osteoporosis)
  • Certain antibiotics, including Ketek
  • Drugs designed to help people stop smoking such as Chantix
  • Painkillers and chronic pain medications such as Vioxx, Fentanyl, Topamax, Celebrex and Bextra
  • Birth control prescriptions, including Yaz and Ortho Evra
  • Blood clotting drugs and medication meant to reduce strokes, such as Pradaxa
  • Select serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressants, including Zoloft, Prozac, Paxil, Lexapro, Celexa, Fluoxetine, Effexor, Luvox, Wellbutrin, Serzone and Remeron
