What steps should you take if your medication is recalled?

Many Americans take over-the-counter and prescription medications to make them feel better or keep them alive. While many of them work as they're intended to, others are downright dangerous. Manufacturers and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recall countless drugs or medications from the market every year. These recalls often happen after patients experience health declines. There are steps that you should follow if your medication is recalled.

Don't underestimate the danger of drugged driving

You know that drunk driving is a dangerous and inexcusable type of reckless behavior. Most people are aware of the ways that alcohol can impair a driver and make it more difficult for him or her to operate a vehicle safely. However, many people seriously underestimate the danger of getting behind the wheel after taking certain types of drugs. 

A new app aims to better inform medical device owners of recalls

When a recall gets issued for food, toys, consumer electronics or other consumer items, you'll often hear it announced on the nightly news. Sadly, there isn't the same degree of proactiveness among media outlets in getting the word out about medical device recalls. A smartphone app that has recently been released on the market may make it easier for consumers to become aware of device recalls though.

How often do dangerous drugs make it on store shelves?

One of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) responsibilities is to inspect domestic or foreign facilities that manufacture drugs distributed to pharmacies and stores here in this country. This is supposed to keep defective or contaminated drugs from ending up in consumers' hands. The significant amount of warnings, recalls and pharmaceutical injury lawsuits that have been filed in recent years shows that this must not be an effective approach though.
