Legally Pink Law, PLLC stands ready to represent clients in medical negligence and product liability
cases. Oftentimes, personal injury results when corporations and manufacturers
shirk their responsibility in properly warning consumers about product dangers.
The US Food & Drug Administration has issued a statement recommending
that doctors and pharmacists discontinue prescribing and dispensing prescription
combination drug products that contain more than 325 milligrams (mg) of
acetaminophen per tablet, capsule or other dosage unit. This commonly
prescribed drug has been overused and can severely damage the liver.
The FDA fears that the risks of going above 325mg of the drug outweigh
potential benefits when smaller doses may be just as effective. Overdose
can lead to liver failure, liver transplant, and death. Damage can occur
when a patient takes more than one drug that includes acetaminophen, when
they exceed the drug use limits, or when they combine the drug with alcohol intake.
