Prescription Drug Recalls

When a doctor prescribes a medication, you likely assume that it will be safe and helpful. Unfortunately, sometimes doctors prescribe medicines that are not safe for public use, and may cause serious and unexpected side effects. When this occurs, the drug manufacturer should issue a recall of the drug, alerting the public to its potential dangers.

If you have been the victim of a recalled pharmaceutical, you may be eligible for receiving compensation for your losses. To speak with a with a Stevens Point prescription recall attorney from the law firm of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, call 800-242-2874. We offer free case evaluations.

What to Do after a Recall

If you are taking a medication that has been recalled, there is certain protocol to follow. First and foremost, stop taking the recalled drug immediately. Afterwards, you should:

  • Make an appointment with your healthcare provider so he or she can evaluate you for signs of any unexpected or adverse side effects.
  • Switch to a safer medication.
  • Return the recalled drug to the pharmacy to make sure it is properly disposed of.

If you are experiencing any of the side effects for which the drug was recalled, you may be eligible to receive compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, and potentially more.
