Drug Warning Labels
Product Liability Lawyer
Before starting any medication, it is extremely important to read all the information included. In some cases, drug warnings or black box warnings have been given to these drugs. Given their name from the black border that surrounds these warnings, the Food and Drug Administration requires the warnings if medical research has proven the drug may cause dangerous side effects. As doctors may not tell the patient that the medication prescribed contains a warning, it is important for every person who takes a drug to research it thoroughly.
As the FDA does not standardize these labels, each pharmaceutical company designs their own. Some of the most common warning labels include directions on storage, warnings to keep away from children, and warnings not to consume if pregnant. They can also say when and how to take the medication as well as things to stay away from while taking the drugs.
Why would you need a product liability attorney?
There are times when a warning has not yet been issued for a drug, but it still had adverse health effects for those who take it. If this is your case, it is important to speak to a product liability attorney with experience in dangerous
pharmaceutical drugs. If the drug manufacturer failed to properly warn, label, or design the drug according to health and safety standards, they could be held liable for any injury or death caused by their product.
