Pharmaceutical drugs are associated with the treatment of symptoms or illnesses for the general wellbeing of the person taking the medication. Whether prescribed or purchased over-the-counter, consumers expect that these products will deliver effective results without endangering their health.
It is important to keep in mind, however, that pharmaceutical companies don’t remain in business to help people, but rather to turn a profit. It is a multi-billion dollar industry that is consistently growing in the U.S. Like other companies, pharmaceutical companies are legally responsible for the products they produce and sell, and unfortunately, many of those products have been responsible for yielding harmful side effects in individuals who unsuspectingly consume the drugs with no knowledge of the potential harm they can cause.
The side effects aren’t merely uncomfortable or inconvenient, but rather, many serious illnesses and deaths have been linked to over-the-counter drugs and prescribed medications. Even well-known, seemingly harmless drugs, such as ibuprofen, are responsible for producing Stevens-Johnson Syndrome and Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis in thousands of people each year. What’s worse is that some companies that sell ibuprofen refuse to warn consumers of the severe dangers of such conditions, leaving many people vulnerable to a long-term recovery process, permanent scarring, and even death.
