drug lawsuits

Americans who need health care are at the mercy of their physicians and the drugs that they prescribe. They must rely on the faith that such drugs are safe and will help them, not hurt them. But tragically, that often is not the case. In fact, many thousands of Americans annually have been injured or even killed by defective drugs.

Such drugs are manufactured and marketed by massive pharmaceutical companies which make billions of dollars in profits. These pharmaceutical giants don’t always fully research the safety or dangers of their products, though that may not stop the U.S. Food and Drug Administration — supposedly the watchdog of such companies — from approving drugs’ use anyway.

When such drugs turn out to be defective, it’s as if innocent Americans have served as test subjects for the drugs’ powers, and when those drugs prove harmful, those Americans pay the biggest price. Pharmaceutical giants then circle the wagons with legal defenses, while injured Americans do their best to secure the financial compensation which is rightfully due them by law for their defective drug injuries. They can do this with help from a defective drug lawyer.

For an individual American, securing such economic recovery – and a sense of justice to go with it – may be extremely difficult. Pharmaceutical corporations have enormous resources, drawn from the huge profits they’ve made over the years as suppliers of drugs to the American public. Their defective drugs can cause serious injury to users who took them on faith when given a physician’s prescription. These victims are entitled to financial compensation for their losses, including their medical bills, their lost present and future salary, and their pain and suffering. An Adler drug lawsuit lawyer can seek such recovery from the pharmaceutical companies which caused the suffering and harm.

Indeed, individual Americans who are harmed by defective drugs need not go into battle against pharmaceutical giants alone. Rather, they can engage knowledgeable and experienced legal assistance via a defective drug lawyer or attorney with Jim Adler & Associates. If you or a family member took a defective drug, you may be legally entitled to substantial financial recovery for your injury losses. That can include medical expenses, lost present and future wages, and your pain and suffering as a result of the injury.

Abilify is used as an antidepressant but can cause such side effects as stroke, diabetes or high blood sugar. Its active ingredient is aripiprazole, which also is sold as Aripiprex. Abilify is made and marketed by Bristol-Myers Squibb.


Depakote is a drug used to reduce seizures, including epilepsy, as well as migraine headaches. But if used by pregnant women it can lead to cleft lip, missing limbs and other birth defects in their children. Anti-seizure drug Topamax also can produce such birth injuries.


If taken by young males, antidepressant drug Risperdal can cause a side effect known as gynecomastia, or development of male breast tissues. Gynecomastia is often characterized by pain and severe psychological and emotional trauma and may require treatment such as mastectomy, liposuction or medication.

Sodium Glucose Transporter-2 (SGLT2) Inhibitors

SGLT2 inhibitors are prescribed for type 2 diabetes patients to control glucose levels by removing excess sugar via urine produced by the kidneys. Yet severe — even fatal — SGLT2 side effects can arise, including heart attacks, kidney failure and diabetic ketoacidosis. Common SGLTS2 Inhibitors include Invokana, Invokamet, Jardiance, Farxiga, Glyxambi and Xigduo.


Low-T testosterone treatments are given to many aging men to restore testosterone levels, yet these treatments can cause strokes, heart attacks or other side effects. Such treatments may be given by patch, injection or gel to boost muscle mass and sex drive. Yet their side effects can be severe and also can include a higher risk of blood clots, myocardial infarction, mini strokes and TIA, or Transient Ischemic Attack.


Xarelto is a new type of blood thinner, or anticoagulant, taken orally as a 10mg tablet to reduce blood clots. Dangerous Xarelto side effects include uncontrolled internal bleeding, abnormal liver function and reduced platelet levels. In fact, Xarelto can cause the fatal blood clots and strokes it is meant to prevent.


Zofran is an anti-nausea drug for chemotherapy or post-surgery patients which has been prescribed inappropriately for women facing morning sickness. Children of mother’s who have taken Zofran can suffer horrible birth defects due to active ingredient ondansetron. Zofran’s maker paid $3 billion in the largest healthcare fraud settlement in U.S. history.
