Pursuing Justice For Victims Of Reglan Side Effects
Reglan was marketed as an effective treatment for a variety of gastrointestinal disorders, including heartburn and acid reflux. In 2009, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued an alert advising of the side effects of the drug and required a box warning against chronic use.
Unfortunately, manufacturers failed to explain the complications associated with Reglan. The drug, which comes in tablet and injection form, contains metoclopramide, which has been known to carry a higher risk of Parkinson’s symptoms. Long-time users have also suffered other severe side effects from the drug, including:
- Tardive dyskinesia
- Neuroleptic malignant syndrome (NMS)
If you or a loved one has endured complications from Reglan, we will investigate thoroughly to uncover any acts of negligence. The pharmaceutical litigation attorneys at our firm work with industry-leading experts to help determine any liability factors, including false advertising, product defects and manufacturing defects.
Our aggressive approach often prompts insurance companies to make large settlement offers covering medical expenses, rehabilitation, lost wages and other expenses incurred from medical malpractice. If the settlement offer is too low, we will not hesitate to pursue a favorable trial verdict.
