How do you trust
It seems like every other month you hear about some controversy over a drug, a drug manufacture or some other medical controversy. I recently read an article about the drug called Trasylol, it is used to reduce blood loss in patients undergoing various heart surgeries. The article discussed how recent studies have linked use of the drug to increased risk of kidney damage, heart attack and stroke. It's amazing that these drugs are ok'd for use only to find out after they have been used by many people they might not be as safe as everyone expected. Is it realistic to think that these manufactures really had no idea of the risk they were exposing patients too? I'm sure it will only be a matter of time before we start to hear of Trasylol lawsuit against the manufacturer "Bayer" to settle with the patients that have been effected by the use of these drugs. This is just another example of drugs causing as many problems as they help like the drug Accutane which was linked to Chron's Disease in a number of patients and successful Accutane Lawsuit Accutane lawsuit have already been completed.
