The Dangers and Risks of Taking Prescription Drugs
Medical treatment oftentimes includes medications that are intended to improve health and the quality of one’s life. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. Doctors may prescribe the wrong medication or dosage, and fail to make an accurate diagnosis and cause serious harm. In addition, some drugs go to market before being fully tested. By the time a drug is recalled, hundreds or even thousands of people have been put at undue risk, all in the name of profits for big drug companies.
Signs and symptoms of a prescription drug injury include, but are not limited to:
- Pulmonary embolism
- Primary pulmonary hypertension
- Kidney damage
- Kidney failure
- Blood clot
- Heart attack
