Wisconsin Drug Side Effects Lawyers
Your medication should help you, not harm you. Unfortunately, not all drugs are safe. In fact, many medicines come with minor side effects, while some can even result in major health problems. In some cases, the Food and Drug Administration will give its Black Box warning to drugs with particularly dangerous side effects, but this does not always cover all potentially hazardous medication.
Doctors and pharmacists are responsible for informing you of any dangerous medication side effects, as well as warning you of things that you should avoid while on the medication. If you or someone you love has been harmed by drug side effects, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Contact a Wisconsin drug side effects attorney from Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, today at 800-242-2874 to discuss your case.

Prescription drugs are very powerful combinations of chemicals designed to help your body in some way. However, sometimes the chemicals can have a negative effect on your body. You may experience problems like headaches or dizziness, and in some cases, you can develop problems like neuromuscular diseases. In other extreme cases, some medications can make you more likely to suffer from a heart attack or stroke.
