Drug manufacturers have a responsibility to make pharmaceuticals that are safe and cause no harm to people. To keep the public safe, new drugs are supposed to undergo rigorous testing by the company and meet strict federal government standards.

Unfortunately, drug companies sometimes cut corners in order to rush a new drug to market. And when they do, safety concerns sometimes get pushed to the side and a medication can turn into a dangerous drug.

Dangerous drugs do the exact opposite of what they were intended to do in the first place. Instead of making people feel better, dangerous drugs can cause serious health problems. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration often issues recalls for drugs linked to serious side effects and pulls them off the shelves. But sometimes, the FDA doesn’t catch all the dangerous drugs until much later. And during that time, people taking these dangerous drugs often experience serious side effects that cause significant health problems or, in certain extreme cases, even death.

Insurance companies want you to believe they’re on your side. They want you to think they’re looking out for your best interests. The truth can often be quite different, though.
