What Counts as a Dangerous Drug?
For the purpose of a personal injury lawsuit, a “dangerous drug” refers to any pharmaceutical drug that did not work as intended and, instead, caused serious injury. This means that some type of negligence was committed when designing, manufacturing, or marketing the drug.
Some of the most common defective and dangerous drugs include:
- Acne medications — Accutane and generic isotretinoin
- Alzheimer’s medications — Aduhelm, or aducanumab
- Antidepressants — monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs), selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), etc.
- Birth control pills — combination pills and progestin-only pills, also known as mini pills
- Diabetes medications — Invokana, Farxiga, and generics
- Heartburn medications — Zantac, generic ranitidine, Mylan, and generic nitizadine
- HIV medications — Truvada and generics
- Hypertension medications — Cozaar, Diovan, and generics

Who Can Be Held Liable for a Dangerous Drug Injury?
Per law, pharmaceutical companies are required to conduct thorough clinical trials to ensure the safety and efficacy of their drugs. When a drug causes injury, the pharmaceutical company behind that drug tends to be liable.
A pharmaceutical company may also be held liable for injuries resulting from deceptive marketing practices, such as making false claims about what the drug can do and how safe it is to take.
What About the Doctor Who Prescribed the Drug?
A medical professional will not typically be considered liable for a dangerous drug injury. This is because medical professionals are operating on the information they were provided about the drug—and the pharmaceutical company is the one that provided this data. Medical professionals will only be liable if they fail to take the patient’s medical history into account when prescribing a drug.
