What is a black box warning?

by cjadmin | January 18th, 2018

Black box warnings—or boxed warnings—are used to notify patients of significant risks of serious or life-threatening side effects. Found on the package insert of certain prescription drugs, black box warnings are issued by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Unfortunately, black box warnings are often not issued until after drugs harm patients. If a drug has injured you or a loved one, taking legal action can help hold the pharmaceutical company liable for their negligence and may help prevent further injuries to other patients. Contact us today to learn about your legal rights.
