Drug Recall

Belviq Elmiron Essure Invokana Paragard
Belviq was
discontinued
by the FDA
due to increased
risk of cancer.  
In some cases,
taking Elmiron
has resulted in
vision issues and
blindness. 
Bayer stopped
selling Essure 
after many
cases of organ
perforation. 
Taking Invokana has 
caused some patients
to be at risk for 
ketoasidosis,
kidney damage, and
amputation.  
In some cases,
Paragard has
been linked to
breakage on removal, 
leading to
uterine damage.
Synvisc One Valsartan Zofran Zantac  3M Earplugs
Sanofi issued a drug
recall for Synvisc
One after some
patients reported
severe knee pain and infections. 
Some lots of
Valsartan were
recalled by
the FDA after
they were contaminated 
by a known 
carcinogen.  
After taking 
Zofran while
pregnant, many
women have
reported birth
defects like
cleft palate, skull deformities, and
heart defects. 
Sanofi issued a
recall for Zantac
when some
batches were contaminated
by a known carcinogen.
3M Earplugs were used in both the military and commercial sector to block sound. After using these, many people experienced hearing problems and loss of hearing.
Hernia Mesh Mesothelioma Paraquat Roundup Talcum Powder
Multiple types of Hernia Mesh have been recalled since their introduction in 2005 because they broke down in the body, causing severe pain and other issues. Mesothelioma is a cancer that develops after exposure to asbestos. Many contractors in the USA continued to use asbestos after its link to mesothelioma was proven. Paraquat is a common herbicide used in agriculture that has been linked to the emergence of Parkinson’s Disease and other chronic illnesses. Monsanto is changing the formula for the weed killer Roundup after studies have linked one of the active ingredients to cancer. Johnson and Johnson announced the removal of talcum powder (baby powder) from the market after several studied linking it to cancer.

Pharmaceutical Negligence in Arizona  

Estimates from the Food and Drug Administration indicate that a minimum of roughly 1.3 million people in the United States are victims of pharmaceutical negligence each year. Medication errors are listed as one of the five most common medical malpractice errors committed in the United States, and drug recall falls under the term medication error.  

Pharmaceutical negligence occurs when an individual taking medication becomes sick, or dies as a result of taking that medicine. Pharmaceutical negligence can occur under a variety of circumstances and for various reasons, including because a drug is unsafe for use, the wrong medication is dispensed by the pharmacy, the wrong drug is prescribed, or there are long term side effects about which the patient was not warned. Many drug recalls are the result of negative side effects that causes the drug to be unsafe.

Importantly pharmaceutical negligence can occur with prescription drugs and over the counter drugs. Over the counter drugs can be dangerous when there are unknown side effects of which the taker was not warned or aware, or because the drug is unsafe for use. In some instances the FDA even recalls some of these drugs. For a list of drugs currently under recall by the FDA visit their website, here
