How often do prescription drugs cause harm?

When we turn to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), we can see that nearly 50% of the population uses at least one prescription drug every month. Approximately 24% of people use three or more prescription drugs in a month, and nearly 13% of people use five or more prescription drugs a month.

Prescription drugs must be approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and they are only approved after extensive testing. However, many pharmaceutical companies focus on profit over patients and routinely release prescription drugs that have serious side effects and without adequate warnings for consumers.

The dangers of defective prescription drugs vary widely but can include birth defects, heart attacks, insomnia, hypertension, numbness, and more. Defective and dangerous prescription drugs can lead to chronic medical conditions that require lifelong medical care.
