Risks Associated with Actemera

Patients often assume that a prescription drug is safe when it is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Unfortunately, many people are harmed by drugs that have been approved by the FDA, including Actemera. This medication is prescribed for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. Unlike many drugs, the manufacturer of this medication failed to warn patients of the potential dangers of the drug. According to the FDA, more than 1,000 people have died after taking this drug and many more were seriously harmed.

The serious side effects associated with Actemera include:

  • Heart failure
  • Stroke
  • Lung disease
  • Gastrointestinal perforations
  • Interstitial lung disease

The side effects associated with this drug are the same as other drugs that are prescribed for rheumatoid arthritis. The problem is that the manufacturer falsely claimed that its drug was superior to others because it did not cause these side effects. This misleading statement caused doctors to prescribe this drug over others without warning their patients of potential side effects.
