Drugs That Can Cause Injury
Although new medicines undergo testing and must receive approval from the
Food and Drug Administration (FDA), they may still cause unwanted side
effects. The drug's manufacturer has a duty to inform medical personnel
and the public about possible side effects. However, whether due to incomplete
testing or lack of warning, prescription drugs sometimes injure or even
Over-the-counter drugs may or may not have obtained FDA approval. Cold
remedies, non-narcotic painkillers, and weight loss drugs are examples
of over-the-counter drugs.
