Zithromax Drug Lawsuits
Zithromax (azithromycin), also known as Z-Pak, is a popular antibiotic manufactured by Pfizer that has been prescribed to over 40 million patients since it was launched in 1991.
The medication is used to treat a host of bacterial infections. Zithromax quickly became a popular choice for physicians because it can be taken in a fewer amount of days than most other antibiotics. However, in 2012, a study in the New England Journal of Medicine concluded that Zithromax was shown to create an increased risk of cardiovascular conditions as opposed to competing antibiotic treatments.
Specifically, it was found that Zithromax could potentially cause fatal irregular heart rhythms. This risk was found to be even further increased for people with pre-existing cardiovascular conditions such as arrhythmia.
Mounting concerns after the study was published led to an FDA investigation. In May 2013, the FDA announced a revision in Zithromax’s label to include a warning for increased risk of QT interval prolongation, the medical term for the lengthening of the heart’s electrical cycle. Pfizer, the makers of Z-Pak, are responsible to warn the public of the risks associated with taking their product.
Many patients who have suffered serious medical complications because of Zithromax are expected to have legal claims against the pharmaceutical giant. These lawsuits will most likely allege that Pfizer should have known and alerted the public of the risks associated with taking their medication.
