Common Prescription Drugs with Dangerous Side Effects

There have been many advancements in prescription medications over the years. They have treated a number of physical and mental ailments and have helped people live better lives. However, that does not mean that some of the drugs don’t come with risks. Here are a few prescription medications with dangerous side effects.

  • Antidepressants. Depression is one of the most common mental health disorders among Americans. Many people turn to antidepressants, like Zoloft or Prozac, to treat their depression. These drugs work by regulating chemicals in the brain and can be quite effective. Unfortunately, however, they may increase the risk of strokes and heart attacks in some.
  • Anticoagulants. People at risk of blood clots may take anticoagulants. Unfortunately, these medications have been linked to severe health conditions, like heart attacks, stroke and deep vein thrombosis.
  • Opioids. Those who are dealing with severe pain, whether from a back injury or broken bone, may be prescribed opioids. Although these prescription painkillers are very effective at temporarily relieving pain, they are highly addictive. Patients can become addicted to opioids and need higher doses to get the same effects, which may lead to overdoses. As a dangerous drug lawyer can confirm, opioids can also cause slowed breathing and heart rate.
  • Sedatives. Anxiety is another common mental health disorder in the United States. Those with anxiety may be prescribed sedatives, like Valium or Xanax. However, these drugs can sometimes cause cognitive impairment, which impacts your concentration and coordination. Sedatives may also cause respiratory depression.

How Dangerous Drug Claims Differ from Personal Injury Claims

Dangerous drug claims aren’t like traditional personal injury claims. Most of the time, personal injury cases are fairly straightforward and easy to determine liability. Dangerous drug claims, on the other hand, tend to be more complex. It may be tricky to establish that a particular drug caused you harm. This is especially true if you’re on multiple medications. That’s why it’s essential to have an experienced lawyer on your side. He or she will help you gather the necessary evidence to prove your case.

Damages in a Dangerous Drug Claim

If you’ve suffered harm after taking prescription medication, you may be entitled to several types of damages, including:

  • Hospital bills
  • Doctor’s visits
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Emotional distress

An experienced lawyer will know the true value of your case and help you pursue the damages you are entitled to. Although nothing can make up for what happened to you, receiving compensation can relieve some of your financial burden.

If you sustained injuries after taking prescription medication, you should schedule a consultation with a dangerous drug lawyer from Cohen & Cohen to discuss your case in further detail.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
