Before a new drug can be approved by the FDA and enter the market, it must comply with certain regulations to ensure its safety and effectiveness. Unfortunately, there are a number of deceptive practices which can be employed by the manufacturing company in order to expedite the FDA approval process. In some cases, the pharmaceutical company may withhold the more serious side effects associated with the medication in an attempt to avoid rejection by the FDA. Sometimes, the FDA will immediately approve a new drug based upon preliminary information with the condition that further clinical trials will be performed in the meantime. These misleading practices make potentially dangerous drugs available to consumers without full and accurate knowledge of the risks to which they may be subjecting themselves. These risks may result in the development of life-threatening and potentially fatal side effects by consumers who were inadequately informed by the companies responsible for the safety of their drugs. Unfortunately, consumers are vulnerable to the misleading practices of drug manufacturing companies on a daily basis. The only way to effectively stand up to the deception of big drug companies is to contact a qualified attorney and file a defective drug lawsuit.
