Novel Laboratories recently announced a recall on a prescription sleeping drug, Zolpidem Tartrate Sublingual. The recalled drugs were sold at clinic and pharmacies nationwide, including CVS, Costco, Walgreens, and Kroger for two months in 2016. The drugs were sold in blister packs and those packs were not child-resistant, as required under federal law.
It doesn’t appear that anyone was harmed by the improper packing of these drugs. However, errors involving prescription drugs harm millions of Americans each year. In some cases, the drugs are incorrectly prescribed, or an error occurs at the pharmacy when the order is being filled. In other situations, the drug is correctly prescribed and the prescription is correctly filled, but there is a problem with the drug because it was incorrectly manufactured.
If you are harmed by a prescription drug, it’s critical that you seek legal help. There may be several parties responsible, including the doctor who prescribed the drug, the pharmacist who filled the prescription, or the drug’s manufacturer. They all have teams of attorneys on their side who will fight your claims to ensure that you get as little compensation as possible.
