FDA Recall, Warning or Action: The FDA issued a warning in late 2011 stating that further trials of the drug Multaq® have shown serious risk of cardiovascular problems including death.
Prescription medications are often required to change or include warnings after repeated dangerous side effects are reported. Any time our team learns that a pharmaceutical producer or surgical products provider has been singled out as putting corporate gains over consumers, our lawyers initiate a meticulous search to determine everyone that may be responsible for the injuries suffered. In some cases the fault comes from the pharmaceutical company’s failure to identify contraindicated situations, provide adequate instructions or to tell consumers about serious side effects.
