GlaxoSmithKline is recalling Ventolin Diskus inhalers, which may not deliver the intended dose of medication. Ventolin Diskus is a prescription drug that is used in children over the age of four, as well as adults, to prevent and relieve bronchospasm caused by asthma, bronchitis, and other lung disorders. Bronchospasm is a shortness of breath and wheezing.
If the correct dosage is not delivered, the individual may believe that the dose was not delivered. Their symptoms, including coughing, wheezing, and breathlessness, could get worse over time. They could suffer a serious asthma attack or other health consequences. Customers who purchased this product can return it to the pharmacy for a replacement.
Unfortunately, drug recalls are not unusual. Pharmaceutical companies may fail to sufficiently test drugs, may offer inadequate warnings, or may fail to meet quality standards during the manufacturing process, which can result in a dangerous product. Patients who are injured by defective drugs may be able to pursue a claim against the manufacturer for their damages, including medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, permanent disability, and more.
If you have been harmed by a defective drug, you should speak with an attorney. You may have the right to compensation.
