Millions of people throughout the United States rely on pharmaceutical

prevent disease. As consumers, we trust that these medications have gone

While this is often the case, many pharmaceutical drugs contain defects
or are unreasonably harmful for normal use. Others are prescribed for
off-label, unapproved uses. As a result, countless individuals are harmed
or even killed by defective and dangerous drugs every single year.

What Makes a Drug “Dangerous?”
Virtually all pharmaceutical drugs carry some risk. These are commonly
known as side effects, and most drugs are placed on the market because
the proven benefits have been deemed as outweighing the potential side
effects. However, when a drug’s side effects are unreasonably dangerous
or outweigh the purported benefits, that drug could be considered defective.
Additionally, when drugs are marketed for off-label (meaning, untested)
use, they can be considered dangerous.
So, how do dangerous and defective drugs make it onto the market and into
the hands of consumers? Surprisingly, and contrary to popular belief,
the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) doesn’t actually test drugs.
Instead, it relies on information regarding the drug’s benefits
and side effects, as well as its intended uses, from the pharmaceutical
company that manufactured the drug. Often, pharmaceutical companies will
push drugs through the trial phase in order to enhance their profits.
They may ignore dangerous side effects or try to claim that the benefits
outweigh potential risks, even when this is not the case.
