Zoloft® Attorneys Jacksonville
FDA Recall, Warning or Action: The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has repeatedly warned consumers with new alerts about the consequences and serious complications of taking antidepressant drugs like Zoloft®.
Several prescription anti-depressant drugs have been required to include package warnings of potentially serious side effects. We relentlessly monitor the outcomes handed down by state and federal courts for cases involving dangerous products and negligent drug manufacturing companies. In some cases the fault comes from the pharmaceutical company’s failure to identify contraindicated situations and accurately list known side effects or negative outcomes.
