Zoloft may have caused drug injuries to Ohio patients

Depression is a largely visible disease, and even family members and friends of individuals who suffer from it are often unaware of its damaging effect on their loved one. People in Ohio and across the country turn to treatments such as talk therapy or prescription drugs in order to seek relief. While many of these approaches may work, a common antidepressant, Zoloft, may not be as safe as most believe it to be. Sadly, drug injuries from pharmaceuticals can even worsen some people's depression.

Food and Drug Administration petitioned to expand Chantix warning

Ohio residents who would like to stop smoking have probably tried a number of smoking-cessation products. There are several over-the-counter and prescription level treatments that have been proven to help, but the safety of one prescribed treatment in particular is facing scrutiny from safety advocates. The Food and Drug Administration has recently been petitioned by five different advocacy groups to expand warning labels on the anti-smoking drug Chantix.

Fear of drug injuries prompts recall affecting Ohio patients

When problems are suspected with pharmaceutical drugs it is not an uncommon occurrence for a recall to be issued. Recently, Martin Avenue Pharmacy, a company located in the Midwest that produces and supplies medications across the country, has issued a recall of several compounded prescriptions for fears of possible drug injuries. Patients and providers in several states, including Ohio, are reportedly affected by this recall.

Sterile drugs recalled for fear of possible drug injuries

Unique Pharmaceuticals has issued a voluntary recall of all sterile drug products that have not expired. This recall was prompted after an inspection of the drug-manufacturing facilities found sanitation issues. It is believed that these sanitation problems could lead to the contamination of products, in turn causing drug injuries to patients. As drugs from this manufacturer are shipped nationwide, patients in Ohio may want to be aware of this situation.

Pharmaceutical litigation possible over dialysis drug recall

Patients tend to trust that the drugs they need to take for their health issues have been through proper quality control procedures and are safe for use.

In cases where an injury resulted from using this apparently tainted drug, pharmaceutical litigation may follow.

Experts fear increase in drug injuries with new painkiller debut

America, as a whole, has seen an increase in not only the number of patients using prescribed painkillers, but in the number of painkillers currently manufactured by pharmaceutical companies. With every new drug that comes out, experts grow increasing concerned about possible drug injuries that may result from their use. Ohio residents, who have suffered injuries related to prescription use, retain the right to file a lawsuit to seek compensation for the damages done.

Antidepressant recalled after heart medication found in bottle

Ohio residents who rely on the antidepressant called Effexor XR or generic versions of the drug should be aware that three lots of the medication were recently recalled by its manufacturer, Pfizer Inc. According to the report, the recall resulted after the discovery of a single capsule of another medication in a bottle of Effexor.

Defective medical devices causing fatal blood clots, lawsuit says

Women in Ohio may be among those around the U.S. who sued pharmaceutical giant Merck during the past ten years over its NuvaRing contraceptive device. The company was accused of hiding information about potentially deadly blood clotting during the device's Food and Drug Administration approval process. NuvaRing was approved in 2001, and Merck began marketing it in 2002. The product is similar to oral birth control pharmaceuticals using progestin and estrogen together to decrease the chance that a woman will become pregnant.

Company may avoid pharmaceutical liability through recall

Cleveland residents may be interested in the recall of 98 non-expired, sterile medications after a contamination in one of the products was discovered by a Michigan hospital. According to reports, even though no illnesses have been reported concerning use of the product, the recall was being carried out due to "an abundance of caution."

Diet pill users may file pharmaceutical litigation in liver cases

Cleveland dieters who may be considering taking the diet pill OxyELITE Pro may be interested in the recently reported cases of liver failure among users in Hawaii.

The manufacturer of the pills could be facing pharmaceutical litigation due to the alleged side effect.
