When a patient takes a prescribed medication from their health care provider or pharmacist, they usually assume that the drug is going to aid in their recovery or treatment. Unfortunately though some drugs can have dangerous side effects that cause more problems than they can solve. Side effects that could be devastating or in some cases, life threatening.
Before a drug can be released for public consumption and distribution, it must first be tested and then approved by The Food and Drug Administration (FDA). However, even though a medication may pass through the approval process and be released to pharmacies and healthcare providers, there is still a chance that it can have unexpected side effects and be recalled.
Some medications are recalled immediately after any dangerous side effects are discovered but some can remain in circulation for long periods of time. Allowing patients to suffer more serious harm until the side effects or evolving illnesses due to the drug, are discovered.
The most common side effects from taking a dangerous medicine are heart attack, stroke, psychological problems, birth defects, kidney failure, cardiovascular problems, or even death. Some commonly known dangerous medications or drugs with potentially serious side effects are:
- Clozaril (Clozapine)
- Diet Pills
- Muscle Relaxants
- Ortho Evra
- Viagra, Levitra, Cialis
These medications can cause different reactions in every individual or none at all. Even medications not commonly known to cause dangerous side effects can affect you negatively or cause unexpected harm.
