The prescription drug industry is one of the biggest global industries. Many of the largest and most profitable companies in the world are pharmaceutical companies. And while drug companies are often valued at billions of dollars, they spend huge amounts of money to research and develop new drugs to continue increasing their profits.
Because they spend so much money to create new drugs, pharmaceutical companies will also do just about anything to get those drugs approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). In order to grant its approval to sell in the U.S., the FDA must be presented with data that shows that drugs don’t cause side effects or complications that are overly dangerous. When drug companies produce medications that have the potential to cause severe injuries, they may be tempted to hide that information to increase the chances that their new medications are approved for sale.
When potentially dangerous medications are released on the market, those serious complications may not be discovered for years or even decades. In other cases, otherwise safe drugs may become dangerous due to lax or improper manufacturing processes that can result in contamination or irregular dosages. When those drugs end up on pharmacy shelves and inside hospitals, serious injuries and complications can occur.
