Plavix Drug Injuries

Plavix Drug Injuries in Virginia

Helping Virginia Victims Hold Responsible Parties Accountable

One of the best-selling prescription drugs in the country, Plavix is intended to prevent strokes and heart attacks with a greater effectiveness and less chance of stomach upset than aspirin. Mounting research, however, indicates that Plavix actually increases the risk for stroke or heart attack in some patients, and also contributes to a host of other medical problems.

If you’ve suffered harm as a result of taking Plavix or other defective prescription drugs, the product liability attorneys in Virginia at Kalfus & Nachman PC may be able to help you pursue financial compensation.

Health Issues Connected to Plavix

In addition to an increased risk for stroke or heart attack in some Plavix users, Plavix has also been linked to side-effects including:

  • Chest pain
  • Gastrointestinal bleeding
  • Lowered blood pressure
  • Passing or vomiting blood
  • Thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (a condition that causes blood clots to form in blood vessels)

Lawsuits Against Defective Drug Manufacturer

Bristol-Myers Squibb and Sanofi-Aventis, the makers and distributors of Plavix, are currently facing a number of lawsuits stemming from complications attributed to Plavix. Among the allegations are that the companies pushed the drug to market without thorough testing, that patients were not adequately warned as to potential risks, and that the companies made false marketing claims regarding the efficacy of Plavix.

In 2010, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a black box warning regarding Plavix. These warnings appear on the packaging for prescription drugs that may cause severe adverse effects.

If you live in the Roanoke, Newport News, Portsmouth or Norfolk, Virginia, areas and you’ve suffered harm due to Plavix, please contact the experienced Virginia defective product attorneys at Kalfus & Nachman PC online or by phone at (855) 880-8163 to schedule your free case evaluation.
