Defective Drugs

We expect prescription and over-the-counter medications to be safe and effective, and usually, they are. However, despite testing and U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval, many prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) drugs prove to be dangerous to consumers. These harmful medications are known as defective drugs.

When harmful drugs are prescribed to patients or placed on drugstore shelves without adequate warnings or sufficient testing, thousands of innocent people may be seriously injured or die before the medications are removed from circulation.
