Corpus Christi Dangerous Drug Attorneys
Personalized Attention for Clients in Nueces County & Beyond
The most unfortunate fact about dangerous drugs is that the extent of harm caused by certain pharmaceutical drugs often is not brought to light until one or more adults or children sustain significant injuries or even death as a result of using a hazardous medication. When dangerous drug injuries do occur, it is imperative that victims enlist the help of a qualified drug injury attorney as soon as possible.
Many consumers depend on pharmaceutical drugs for survival or to help them live a more comfortable life after they have been diagnosed with a serious illness. Unfortunately, some prescription medications may be linked to side effects so severe, they significantly outweigh any possible benefits of the drug. With the help of the Corpus Christi dangerous drug lawyers at Bandas Law Firm, P.C., victims of dangerous drug injuries can hold the allegedly negligent manufacturer, distributor, or prescribing physician liable for their injuries and medical expenses.

Types of Potentially Dangerous Drugs
Two of the most commonly prescribed types of medications on the market today are anticonvulsant drugs, used to treat epilepsy and seizures, and antidepressant drugs, which are widely prescribed to patients suffering from depression and certain mood disorders like obsessive-compulsive disorder and social anxiety disorder. Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressants, in particular, have become extremely popular in the United States. They were originally designed as the first line of defense against depression. Unfortunately, both anticonvulsant drugs and SSRI antidepressants have been in the spotlight recently due to speculation about the potential for these medications to cause serious adverse side effects among patients, including possibly causing birth defects in children exposed to the drugs during pregnancy, especially during their first trimester.
Anticonvulsant drugs, also commonly called anti-epileptics, come in a variety of different forms, including tablets, capsules, sprinkles, and liquid. Some of the anticonvulsant drugs most commonly taken by patients suffering from epilepsy and other seizure-related disorders include Depakote (valproate), Dilantin (phenytoin), and Tegretol (carbamazepine). Despite the fact that anticonvulsant drugs are becomingly increasingly popular among epilepsy patients, and are even being prescribed for off-label uses, studies have shown that these potentially dangerous drugs may be linked to the development of life-altering and possibly even fatal birth defects among infants whose mothers take the drugs while pregnant.
SSRI Antidepressant Drugs
Every day, more and more consumers are being diagnosed with depression in the United States. This condition affects approximately 18.8 million American adults each year. As prescriptions for antidepressant medications are on the rise, so too is evidence suggesting women who take these potentially dangerous drugs may have an increased risk of giving birth to children with major birth defects. Among the most popular SSRI antidepressant medications are Paxil (paroxetine), Prozac (fluoxetine), Zoloft (sertraline), Celexa (citalopram), and Lexapro (escitalopram).
