Millions of people count on pills and other medications to help alleviate or eliminate pain, sickness and illness. These medicines consist of prescription pills, over-the-counter drugs, nutritional products, dietary supplements, transdermal patches and more. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is responsible for making sure that these drugs are safe to use for consumers. However, the FDA is also responsible for drug recalls, safety alerts, withdrawals and labeling changes.
Pharmaceutical drugs are everywhere. Television commercials advertise them between shows, and magazines have ads strewn between articles and features. Even the internet is saturated with advertisements for pills and supplements. Many of these advertisements picture healthy, attractive people claiming that the displayed drug has changed their lives.
Unfortunately, life doesn’t always mirror what you see on TV, and some drugs can end up doing more harm than good.

What constitutes as a drug recall?
The FDA follows a strict regimen to determine if a drug is “safe” for consumer use. After a lengthy process, they issue their stamp of approval and the drug is shipped to thousands of hospitals and drug stores. However, it can take just as long as the initial testing to determine if a pharmaceutical product needs to be recalled. During this process, many users of pills may experience harmful side effects. The Journal of the American Medical Association stated that approximately 100,000 Americans die each year from adverse reactions or adverse drug reactions to prescription drugs.

Drug recalls are actions taken to remove a pharmaceutical product from the market. These drug recalls can be started by a company’s initiative, by request from the FDA, or by statutory order from the FDA. A recall can be made in three classes:
- Class I Recall – There is a likely chance that the use of the drug will cause severe health problems or death.
- Class II Recall – There is a remote chance that there will be severe health problems, or even temporary health problems.
- Class III Recall – There is not a chance the product will cause any health problems.
When there is reason for a recall, the FDA and the manufacturer of the questioned product have to contact all locations where the product may be distributed. After a drug recall from the FDA, retail pharmacies have certain procedures to maintain when complying with FDA rulings. The establishment must immediately remove all stock from the location, place the recalled medication in a specific area, and return the product back to the manufacturer or dispose of it. They must also notify patients currently taking the product of the recall and contact the FDA after all the above steps have been taken.
Often times, drug companies had full knowledge of the harmful effects of their drugs during their testing period and failed to report or downplayed the adverse consequences to the FDA. Sometimes the drug companies fail to provide adequate warnings on their medicines and drugs when they knew or should have known of the adverse consequences. Greed and profit motivates the drug companies; not over safety. As a result, if you or a loved one has been harmed by a drug or prescription medicine, you may be entitled to compensation under what’s called product liability law.
