Many pharmaceutical drugs have side effects or cause illness and disease. If you have suffered from a side effect or developed a health problem from taking a drug, please contact us. People joining together in a class action with help of a lawyer or attorney can be part of an effort to recall or investigate a drug. The Food and Drug Administration or FDA is responsible for making sure prescription drugs are safe. News reports and recall information can be found at www.FDA.gov.
