Common Drug Side Effects
Medications are designed to prevent certain undesirable occurrences from happening or promote beneficial reactions. Unfortunately, some pharmaceutical companies fail to thoroughly inspect the potential side effects of each prescription, and medical professionals sometimes disregard their obligation to disclose the potential threats of prescriptions medications. Some of the signs that you may be experiencing a negative drug side effect include:
- Rash and hives
- Uncontrollable fever
- Swollen glands
- Irregular heartbeat
- Swelling of the tongue and throat
- Difficulty breathing
You have the right to know any potential dangers associated with your medications. If the companies or individuals in charge of investigating these side effects fail to disclose this information to you, they may be liable for any subsequent health complications.
