The Potential Dangers of Prescription Drugs

Prescription drugs were created to help people deal with disorders and diseases. Unfortunately, sometimes these drugs can make patients far sicker than they were to begin with. Every year, millions of people pay hundreds or even thousands of dollars for prescription drugs that give them serious side-effects. While almost every drug available on the market has the potential for some sort of side-effect, certain drugs have side-effects that can cause debilitating disorders or even death.

Pharmaceutical companies spend millions of dollars every year developing and testing drugs. But certain side-effects of drugs are all too often overlooked. Sometimes the pharmaceuticals were not properly tested or they have harmful side-effects that only develop in the long term. It is not uncommon for a drug to be pulled off the market many years after its release.

Pharmaceuticals have contributed to disorders such as:

  • Birth defects
  • Stroke
  • Tremors
  • Seizures
  • Cardiac arrest
  • Cancer
  • Suicide
  • Death

When a drug has been labeled as unsafe because of side-effects, it is either pulled off the market or affixed with a warning label.
