You may be familiar with hearing the term “Black Box Warning” without being clear on what it is. Quite simply it is a warning of possible severe side affects of prescription drugs. You can find this warning on the package insert of the medication. These should never be ignored.

A few products that have been issued a Black Box Warning are:

  • Reglan – MAY cause Dystonia, a neurological movement disorder that can be disabling
  • Chantix, Wellbutrin and Zyban – medications used as anti-depressants and in smoking cessation. May cause a higher risk of suicide.
  • Enbrel– used in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis – can possible cause TB infections

At Beasley Allen, we have been involved with litigation on drugs that have caused adverse side effects, including death. You should always be careful with any medications you have and be sure to ask your doctor lots of questions. Also, don’t ignore what your body is telling you if you think a symptom you have may be due to a medication you are on.
