Do Drug Companies Have Any Responsibilities To their Customers?
For prescription medications, a drug maker generally has no legal obligation to provide warnings about a drug's possible side effects to the general population; instead, the company must provide the information to physicians who prescribe the drug.
HOWEVER, those physicians must have detailed information - including side effects and data on how it interacts with other drugs a patient may be taking.
If you buy a drug over-the-counter, you are supposed to be informed by the manufacturer about all the possible side- effects and how the drug may interact with other drugs you may be taking.
This information is generally less complete than what is provided to doctors, particularly if the drug you are buying was once available only by prescription. No matter if you are taking a prescription drug, or an over-the-counter drug, talk it over with your doctor and your pharmacist.
If you or someone you love has been harmed by a medication, it is important that you seek out attorneys who have experience in this area. If the drug is already the subject of a class action or another type of mass lawsuit called a MDL (multi-district litigation), there will be special procedural rules in such cases.
It is important to speak with counsel familiar with these special procedures and we can help to determine if that may be the case.
