Defective Drugs And Medical Devices

We may like to believe the drugs and medical devices supplied to us through the health care professions are solely for our well-being. While our individual doctors, nurses, therapists and pharmacists most likely have only our health in mind, the fact is that drug companies and medical device manufacturers also have a profit motive. There is a long and complex history in our country involving creation of rulings of the the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), profit motives of some manufacturers, and physicians' application of drugs and medical devices for alternative medical conditions.

Beware Defective Drugs And Medical Devices On The Market Under Questionable Circumstances

For example, a drug that has tested as safe and effective for a particular use may be applied to a different use without proper verification of its appropriateness for the second use. Whether it's Vioxx, a pacemaker, Pradaxa or a replacement hip joint, it is very difficult for individual patients to know whether drugs and medical devices are safe for them to use. They rely on the expertise of their doctors, protective screening by the FDA and the integrity of manufacturers and marketers of medical products.

Unfortunately, patients who suffer serious harm through use of unproven or misapplied medications and medical devices often discover too late that there should have been warning flags. They should have been notified of known risks that, all too often, pharmaceutical companies tend to downplay until a certain number of users have been injured.
