New FDA Warning For Painkillers

By July 13, 2015February 9th, 2017Product Liability

The FDA has issued a new warning regarding NSAID painkillers, including popular brands such as Advil, Motrin, and Aleve. According to the FDA, these and similar painkillers, when taken at least three times a week for a period of three or more months, increase heart attack and stroke risks by 41%. At present, the only action the FDA is requiring drug manufactures take is updating labeling information on their packaging.

It has long been known that pain relievers containing acetaminophen can result in kidney failure. Ibuprofen has been linked to stomach bleeding and heart attack. Even aspirin poses health risks when taken daily. If you or someone you love has been injured by one of these medications, you need an experienced attorney on your side to help you determine if you have cause to file suit.

Seattle product liability attorney Stephen Hornbuckle has decades of experience helping victims of negligent corporations get justice. Pain medications pose serious and fatal risks when taken daily – a fact that has long been known by the companies that make them. Despite this, these companies have fought against stricter labeling regulations and other consumer protections.
