Defective Drug Lawyer

What happens when someone is prescribed a drug that’s supposed to make them better and it hurts or even kills the patient? More than one million people are hurt by defective drugs each year. Sadly, defective drugs kill more than 100,000 people every year. With giant pharmaceutical companies that employ an entire department of lawyers, is there anything you can do if you or someone you love is hurt or killed because of medicine?

If you or someone you love was seriously injured or killed because of one of the following prescription medications, you may be eligible to file a defective drug lawsuit. You should not face the pharmaceutical company alone. After you read the information on this page, call Goldwater Law Firm right away to schedule your free case review.


Abilify is an anti-psychotic drug prescribed for several mental health issues, including depression, schizophrenia, Tourette’s, autism-related irritability, and bipolar disorder. Sadly, while there were once high hopes for Abilify, it’s now been linked to serious side-effects that could damage your finances and your relationships. Studies have shown that Abilify has sudden and severe side effects including the compulsive urge to gamble and shop. Other compulsive actions have also been linked to Abilify, including compulsive eating.

Abilify carries two of the FDA’s most serious warnings: black box warnings. The first black box warning includes a risk of death for elderly patients who’ve been diagnosed with dementia. The second warning states that any patient who takes Abilify and experiences suicidal thoughts or who tries to commit suicide should immediately discontinue the medication.

Abilify may also cause neuroleptic malignant syndrome (NMS). This is a life-threatening reaction that is a risk of taking an anti-psychotic drug.  NMS is deadly.

Call Goldwater Law Firm right away if you or someone you love was seriously impacted by one of Abilify’s serious side effects.

Nexium / Prilosec

Nexium and Prilosec are proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) that are available by prescription and over the counter. It’s often prescribed for people with GERD, acid reflux, and when people take medications that could cause heartburn. Yet, both Nexium and Prilosec don’t come without serious risks to the health of patients.

Both Nexium and Prilosec are linked to kidney disease, kidney failure, high blood pressure, strokes, abnormal heart rhythms, and heart problems. They’re also linked to a lowered magnesium level in the body. Magnesium is a necessary mineral that helps control your blood sugar, blood pressure, and around 300 of your body’s processes.

Call Goldwater Law Firm right away if you or someone you love experienced the serious and life-changing side effects of either Nexium or Prilosec. Don’t wait. A Prilosec or Nexium lawsuit is time sensitive. Waiting to call us could mean that you lose valuable time and could be ineligible to file a lawsuit.


Xarelto, a popular blood thinner that’s marketed as an alternative to Warfarin and Coumadin, was believed to be a more convenient choice for patients at risk of a blood clot. It had no blood work requirements and patients didn’t have to overly concern themselves with dietary changes. When Xarelto hit the market, it seemed like a dream come true.

But, even nightmares are classified as dreams. Unfortunately, Xarelto is linked to uncontrolled bleeding and strokes. Many patients have paid for the convenience of taking this new blood thinner with their lives. Despite being approved by the FDA as a blood thinner, bleeding episodes related to Xarelto have no known antidote.

If you or someone you love was hurt from taking Xarelto, contact Goldwater Law Firm right away. You could be entitled to financial compensation for your injuries.


Zofran is an anti-nausea drug approved for patients undergoing chemotherapy. However, it’s often prescribed to pregnant women to help with morning sickness. While it may seem like a great way to help expectant mothers move forward with their day, taking the medication is linked to birth defects such as cleft palate. Many babies are also born with congenital heart problems.

Birth defects can cause unexpected medical bills along with a lifetime of heartache for mothers and their babies. If you or someone you love took Zofran while pregnant and their baby suffered from a birth defect, contact Goldwater Law Firm now to schedule a case review. You could be eligible to financial compensation for medical and other expenses.


Risperdal, an antipsychotic drug, was approved by the FDA for schizophrenia in adults, schizophrenia in children, behavioral disorders related to autism in children, and bipolar disorder in both children and adults. However, the drug is linked to serious side effects.

The most common side effects associated with Risperdal include lactation in young girls, premature breast development in young girls, and young boys developing breasts. These conditions are often permanent.

Risperdal is also associated with restlessness, nausea, vomiting, drooling, tongue stiffness, an increased risk of falls, and anxiety. If you or someone you love was prescribed Risperdal and suffered from one of its devastating side effects, you may be entitled to financial compensation for medical care and pain and suffering.

Onglyza is a prescription medication approved by the FDA to treat Type 2 Diabetes. Designed to help stimulate insulin production and regulate blood sugar levels, diabetic patients were excited to have another option.

Yet, the excitement was short lived. Medical studies linked Onglyza to serious and life-threatening side effects including, but not limited to, heart failure, pancreatic cancer, pancreatitis, and malignant thyroid tumors. If you or someone you love took Onglyza and developed cancer or suffered from heart failure, contact Goldwater Law Firm now to schedule your free case evaluation. It’s important that your potential legal rights are protected. We’re here to help.


Invokana is an SGLT 2 inhibitor prescribed to Type 2 diabetics to help them control their blood sugar. The goal of the medication is to have excess sugar eliminated from the body through the process of urination. However, Invokana is linked to serious and deadly side effects including ketoacidosis, kidney problems, cardiovascular issues, pancreatitis, blood clots, and an increased risk in amputation.

The FDA has issued multiple warnings about Invokana and the dangers of taking the medication. If you or someone you love was hurt from taking Invokana, call Goldwater Law Firm immediately for your free case review.
