Can I file a lawsuit if I have been injured as the result of taking Zometa?

Patients injured by unsafe products are ordinarily entitled to recover monetary damages for all losses and expenses suffered from use of the product. Depending upon the particular circumstances of your case, damages may include recovery for any of the following:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Past and future pain and suffering
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Emotional distress

Ambien lawsuits are being investigated for individuals who took the medication and suffered serious injuries as a result if:

  • Sleep-driving or falling asleep while operating heavy machinery
  • Sleepwalking
  • Sleep eating
  • Memory loss or amnesia
  • Daytime sleepiness or feeling of being drugged, resulting in an accident or fall

  • Rifampin
  • Drugs for epilepsy, such as barbiturates (eg, phenobarbital) and anticonvulsants, including topiramate, carbamazepine, phenytoin
  • Certain drugs used in the treatment of HIV/AIDS

Can this be the second question?

Yes. Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Did FDA approve Lotronex in the first place?

Did FDA approve Lotronex? The FDA based its approval of Lotronex on the results of two, 12-week double-blinded, placebo-controlled clinical trials. A total of 1273 non-constipated women, who met specific pain and stool consistency criteria, were enrolled. In each study, Lotronex was significantly more effective than the placebo in providing relief from IBS pain and discomfort and in reducing the percentage of days with urgency. Treatment with Lotronex also resulted in firmer stools and a significant decrease in stool frequency.

Do other statins present the same safety concerns as Baycol?

All statins have been associated with very rare reports of rhabdomyolysis. These rare cases can occur when the drugs are used alone or in combination with another lipid-lowering drug such as gemfibrozil. However, cases of fatal rhabdomyolysis in association with Baycol use have been reported more frequently than in association with other approved statins.

Does Accutane cause depression?

Discontinuation of Accutane therapy may be insufficient; further evaluation may be necessary. No mechanism of action has been established for these events.”
