Most people would buy a generic drug as easily as they would buy generic laundry detergent or generic soda. But what they don’t know may very well be hurting them.
There has been an alarming rise in the health risks associated with prescription drugs no matter if they are brand name or generics. But, generic drugs pose an even bigger risk all based on how they are approved by the government and the warning labels they carry – or don’t carry.
Each generic drug has to be labeled in the same way as a brand name drug, by law. Those manufacturers can petition to change the warning label information, but in doing so they are changing how the brand name label is marked as well. But there are laws stating that a victim cannot sue the maker of a generic drug because their labels must match the brand name drug. So if you are the victim of a severe side effect and possibly a permanent injury, you will not be able to place a claim. Generic drug manufacturers are free from damage claims as they hold no responsibility as to what’s on their warning labels. Because of this, they can’t be brought up in a suit. So the cost you may be saving while using a generic drug can work against you when it’s time to be compensated by the harm they cause. Watch this video now to learn more.
