Accutane (isotretinoin) is a medication used to treat severe acne. Recalled from the broad U.S. market in 2009, it is now only available in limited circumstances. It has been linked to severe side effects ranging from birth defects to suicide.
Avastin is a type of drug to help with the treatment of certain metastatic cancers. In November 2011, the FDA removed the breast cancer indication from the drug's label stating that the drug had not been proven to extend the length of life or quality of life of patients, but rather exposed patients to life-threatening health risks. Injections of the drug have also recently been linked to blindness.
DePuy Hip Implants
DePuy Orthopedics began producing its ASR hip systems in 2003. In August of 2010, after numerous reports of serious side effects and patients requiring revision surgeries to have their implants replaced, DePuy recalled the ASR XL Acetabular System and ASR Hip Resurfacing System.
PPIs (proton pump inhibitors) are a group of drugs used to treat ulcers and gastroesophageal reflux disease by reducing acid production in the stomach. Unfortunately, long-term use of PPIs has been associated with bone fractures and other serious side effects.
SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) are one of the most popular types of antidepressants on the market today. These drugs, however, have been linked to serious and even deadly side effects such as birth defects and suicidal tendencies.
Surgical mesh may be implanted transvaginally to treat pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence. This method has met with controversy due to serious side effects, including erosion, bleeding, pain and even organ perforation.
The popular antidepressant Zoloft (sertraline hydrochloride) has been linked to serious side effects, particularly when taken by expectant mothers. It has been associated with such birth defects as persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn, heart defects, clubfoot and cleft lip.
