Federal agency locates bacteria in certain stool softeners

As we have previously discussed, the federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is the entity responsible for maintaining the safety and efficacy of pharmaceutical products and medications in the United States.

What is an "MDL" in relation to a defective drug case?

Previous posts here have discussed the serious effects a defective medication can have on you. Because drugs are generally given to individuals who suffer from some form of illness, when a medicine is improperly prepared or manufactured, or has side effects that are not listed or have not been evaluated by the federal Food and Drug Administration, the results can be catastrophic to a person's health and well-being. Further, because of the way in which prescription medications are manufactured and distributed, when one individual has been affected, there is a high likelihood that many others have as well.

What is an "Unexpected Adverse Drug Experience" in Texas?

Previous posts here have discussed how the federal Food and Drug Administration plays an instrumental role in monitoring the safe manufacture and distribution of medications and other pharmaceutical products in Texas and throughout the United States.

However, the agency also requires that drug sellers and manufacturers continue to report any problems that occur with their products after they hit the market.

Diabetes 'natural cures' may be harmful, illegal defective drugs


In previous posts, this blog has discussed the fact that there are various defects that can occur in the process of manufacturing, packaging and selling various types of pharmaceuticals. As has been explained, not all harmful defects in Texas medications are due to improperly made drugs, as the marketing or warning packaging of the drugs can also be defective. While the federal Food and Drug Administration does as much as possible to monitor and prevent drugs that are defective for any reason from entering the marketplace, unfortunately it can still occur.

Defects in drugs aren't always about chemistry


When Texas residents think about defective products, they likely picturing items that have some kind of physical problem with the product itself, such as a design or manufacturing defect. This is especially true when it comes to prescription medications. When the topic of 'defective drugs' comes up, it is common to think of drugs that don't do what they are supposed to, or contain chemicals they are not supposed to contain. However, there is a type of defect that can occur that is as dangerous, and possibly more common when it comes to pharmaceuticals: defective labeling or instructions.
