Welcome to Drug Safety News. It's our goal to provide you current news stories and videos regarding various prescription drugs and medical devices that have been the subject of recalls and/or national litigation. Just because a prescription drug or medical device is discussed below does not mean it's causing you harm. It simply means that safety issues have been raised.

You should not stop using your medication or device simply because it's written about. Instead, you should click on the story, and become informed of the potential issues. If you have concerns after reading the information, then you should consult your physician, and determine the proper medical course for you.
