Dangerous Drugs - Prescription Drugs with Hazardous or Severe

No one seems to care that every day, Americans are injured or killed by dangerous prescription drugs. Since 2000, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has.

FDA reported in 2006 that 11 suicide attempts had occurred in patients given Paxil in trials. Based on the allegation that GlaxoSmithKline misled consumers about Paxil’s safety — including increasing suicidal behavior — a $64 million class-action suit was settled in 2007.
