Uloric was approved by the FDA in 2009 to treat the chronic arthritic condition gout, which affects more than 8 million Americans.
Although it has proven an effective gout treatment, it is one of only a few medications on the market designed for this purpose.
Unfortunately, new studies and warnings show more than 3% of patients taking Uloric may be at risk of stroke, heart-related death, or serious skin disorders.
In February 2018, the FDA added new information to specifically warn Uloric patients of the dangers of Stevens-Johnson Syndrome, drug reaction with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms (DRESS) and toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN).
On February 21, 2019, FDA authorities also added warnings that Uloric patients faced a higher risk of heart-related death, stroke and heart attack.
Those affected that weren’t properly warned may now file claims for substantial compensation.
Important label change information.
State and federal laws allow those who are injured from defective products and medications without proper warning from the manufacturer to file legal claims for their damages.
Like with other dangerous medications, lawyers are now helping those who suffered serious side effects from taking Uloric file claims against the manufacturer, Takeda Pharmaceuticals.
It’s important to note that these cases are filed against Takeda, the drug maker, and not your doctor or pharmacy. Also, these are not part of a class action lawsuit, which traditionally only provide limited compensation for victims. Rather, they are individual cases focused on maximizing compensation for each victim.
Due to the significant damages associated with these serious skin disorders, as well as stroke and death, those who were affected may be entitled to substantial compensation.
If you or a loved one suffered injury or death after taking Uloric, it’s important to talk with a lawyer about your options. The time you have to take action may be limited.
Getting assistance and filing a claim is easy, and won’t cost you anything unless you receive an award. Also, these lawsuits can usually be filed without you ever having to leave your home or attend court hearings.
