Doctor Blames Propecia For Son’s Suicide

A doctor is blaming hair-growth drug, Propecia, for his son’s suicide. Use of Propecia (finasteride), in some cases, has been linked to depression and sexual dysfunction.

Propecia is part of a class of drugs known as 5-alpha reductase inhibitors (5-ARIs), and is approved to treat male pattern baldness. A 5-mg dosage of finasteride, sold under the brand name Proscar, is marketed by Merck & Co. to treat enlarged prostate. Propecia and Proscar work by preventing the conversion of androgen testosterone to DHT, a hormone critical to male sexual performance, NewsInferno explained. (more…)

Pradaxa Death Blamed On Irreversible Bleeding

At least one Pradaxa death is being blamed on irreversible bleeding. Pradaxa (dabigatran), approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) October 2012, is prescribed as a blood thinner for patients diagnosed with atrial fibrillation to prevent stroke. Although both Pradaxa and warfarin—known by the brand name Coumadin, which has been marketed for decades—pose risks for serious bleeding. Where warfarin’s bleeding side effect can be contained, Pradaxa’s cannot: There is no reasonable antidote for Pradaxa bleeding, noted NewsInferno; however, Pradaxa is touted as a better alternative to warfarin.

ICU Patients Taking SSRI, SNRI Antidepressants Have Higher Mortality Rates

A new study reveals that Intensive Care Unit (ICU) patients taking serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRIs) and serotonin–norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRIs) antidepressants have increased mortality rates. SSRIs include drugs sold under the brand names Paxil, Prozac, Celexa, Lexapro, and Zoloft and block the reabsorption (reuptake) of the neurotransmitter serotonin in the brain. Altering serotonin balance helps brain cells send and receive chemical messages, which boosts mood, explained NewsInferno. Other antidepressants that impact serotonin levels include SNRIs such as Effexor and Strattera. (more…)

FDA Issues Statement On Zithromax Death Risk

The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) just issued a statement concerning study that suggests death risks associated with antibiotic, Zithromax (azithromycin), are greater in heart disease patients. The study appears in the New England Journal of Medicine.

The FDA announced that it is aware of the research that studied cardiovascular death risks in patients treated with Zithromax (azithromycin), amoxicillin, Cipro (ciprofloxacin), Levaquin (levofloxacin), and no antibacterial drug. The study reported a small increase in cardiovascular deaths, and in the risk of death from any cause, in people treated with a five-day course of Zithromax, versus people treated with amoxicillin, Cipro, or no drug. The risks of cardiovascular death associated with Levaquin were similar to those seen in Zithromax treatment. (more…)

Lithium Button Batteries Pose Hazard To Children

Tiny lithium button batteries pose hidden dangers and dangerous health hazards to children. The ubiquitous button batteries can be found in many consumer products, even children’ toys.

In one report discussed by ABC News, a three-year-old boy swallowed a small, lithium battery that was only discovered after he fell ill and an X-ray revealed what, at first, appeared to be a button. Surgery revealed that the boy swallowed a battery that led to severe esophageal damage, causing the boy to be fed by tube for several months. (more…)

Boston Scientific Named In 300 Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits

Device maker, Boston Scientific, has been named in 300 transvaginal mesh lawsuits. The controversial devices are typically used during surgical procedures to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and/or stress urinary incontinence (SUI). Sadly, patients describe horrific pain and infections that worsen even after corrective surgery is attempted, leaving these women with limited options and debilitating health responses.

Transvaginal mesh devices were approved through the U.S. Food & Drug Administration’s (FDA) 510(k) fast-track approval process. The 501(k) enables a device access to the market with reduced pre-market safety testing if that device is similar to a previously approved device. Because of the significant outpouring of adverse reactions reports associated with these devices, as well as mounting lawsuits, the agency is considering rescinding 510(k) approvals for transvaginal mesh devices used in POP repair. As a matter-of-fact, the FDA recently asked transvaginal mesh device makers to conduct safety studies of their products. (more…)

This is not the first time patients have complained of side effects from the popular blood thinner. Parker Waichman LLP filed an additional six Plavix bleeding lawsuits on April 30, 2012, also in the Supreme Court of the State of New York, County of New York (Index Nos. 152244/2012; 152232/2012; 152253/2012; 152234/2012; 152238/2012; and 152250/2012).
