Uloric

A Uloric lawsuit may be filed after concerns raised by FDAFDA Warns Gout Medicine Uloric Could Be Deadly

Th U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has concluded that patients taking the gout medicine, Uloric, face an increased risk of death. As a result, many families have hired a Uloric lawyer to help them file a Uloric lawsuit. Officials came to this conclusion after an in-depth review of a clinical trail, and found higher risk of heart-related death in comparison to other gout medicines.

As a result, the FDA announced it will update prescription information for Uloric to include a boxed warning. According to the FDA, only certain patients who were not effectively treated with other medications will be approved to use Uloric.

How Uloric Has Been Used

Originally approved by the FDA in 2009, Uloric is used to gout, a type of arthritis, in adults. Uloric has been prescribed by doctors for this condition because it lowers uric acid levels in the blood, the main contributor of gout. With over 8 million adults suffering from the chronic disease in the United States, medical treatments for gout are limited, and the FDA says there is a severe need for more treatment options.

What To Do If You’ve Used Uloric

If you or a loved one have a history of cardiovascular problems, such as heart attack and stroke, you should immediately consult with a healthcare professional. A doctor can best discuss the risks associated with medications like Uloric to treat symptoms of gout. Always seek immediate medical attention if you experience any of these symptoms while taking Uloric:

  • Trouble talking
  • Sudden severe headache
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest pain
  • Rapid or irregular heartbeat
  • Numbness or weakness on one side of your body
  • Dizziness

A recent Uloric lawsuit has claimed that the manufacturer of the drug failed to warn patients about the medication’s life-threatening side effects. If a loved one has suddenly passed away, and you suspect they were taking Uloric to treat the symptoms of gout, it’s worth contacting a Uloric attorney for a free case evaluation. Our Uloric lawyers are evaluating cases right now, and some families may be entitled to significant compensation if a patient or loved one was seriously affected by the drug’s dangerous side effects.
