A Plaque Cure Class Action Lawsuit

There is a new class action lawsuit which has been filed against the makers of Plaquenil. This is a result of information that has recently come to light about the drug, and the negative side effects that it can have on an individual’s health. Plaquenil was marketed as an oral antibiotic, but it contained a substance called chloroquine. This ingredient is well known for causing renal failure in many people, particularly those who have a pre-existing condition or who have had kidney problems in the past.

Plaquenil Class Action Lawsuit

This has led to questions amongst the general public as to whether or not this substance is appropriate for use as a topical antibiotic. The Class Action lawsuit against Plaquenil claims that the negative side effects that are caused by chloroquine are the direct cause of numerous illnesses and diseases, including but not limited to encephalopathy, dementia, liver damage, memory loss, and even death. These illnesses and conditions, according to the plaintiffs, have caused a great deal of suffering and disability. As a direct result of the harm that these drugs have caused, a number of individuals who may have suffered from other illnesses which could have been prevented, have been unable to resume their daily lives.

A number of lawsuits have also been filed against the drug manufacturers, on behalf of those who suffered from the negative side effects of Plaquenil.

One such case involves a Class Action lawsuit, which was filed on behalf of a man who suffered from acute toxicity due to the consumption of Plaquenil. The man’s symptoms were mild at first, but then his body began to adapt to the drug, and began to weaken. When he went into hospital for treatment, it was determined that he was suffering from the toxic effects of Plaquenil. He was later diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a form of cancer, as a direct result of his exposure to the drug.

Another case involved a woman who was working at a factory which manufactured chloroquine sulfate when she was exposed to the drug.

She developed severe headaches, severe vomiting, and severe stomach pain. After suffering for some time, she was diagnosed with esophageal cancer. As a direct result of this treatment, her prognosis was not good, and she now faces both organ and tissue transplant surgery, as well as a shortened lifespan due to her cancer.

There are many more cases of individuals being affected by the effects of these defective drugs.

Some of these include an elderly man who developed kidney failure after taking Plaquenil. Another individual suffered brain damage as a result of taking chloroquine sulfate. A number of children have also fallen victim to these defective drugs. These drugs are used in a variety of medical situations and can have very harmful side effects, but the link between these drugs and cancer is not widely known. Thus far, the link between the two has only been made in extremely rare circumstances.

Plaquenil is an antipsychotic, which is used to treat symptoms of schizophrenia and other mental illnesses.

The drug was approved by the FDA in 1981. It was soon discovered that Plaquenil had many potential side effects and was banned in some countries, including the United Kingdom. However, it was allowed to be sold in the United States, where it was soon used to treat a wide range of different medical conditions, including erectile dysfunction and fatigue. At the present time, there are claims in the United Kingdom and throughout the world concerning the potentially dangerous effects of Plaquenil.

Currently, there are studies being conducted to determine whether or not chloroquine may cause the development of tumors in the test animals.

There are also studies being conducted regarding the effects of retinal damage in various animals, and whether or not plasmodium infection may lead to blindness. As with all pharmaceuticals, there are some potential risks associated with this chemical. However, as the scientific and healthcare communities work towards determining whether or not plaquenil causes cancer or other serious health problems, more research must be conducted to determine whether or not the long term use of this drug would be hazardous to human beings. It is possible that further studies will prove that the short-term uses of plaquenil in treating a wide range of medical conditions are safe.

Currently, there have been no conclusions regarding whether or not plaquenil causes cancer.

All things considered, it is likely that it does, however this has not been proven definitively. It has also not been determined if the development of retinal damage, related symptoms, or other potential complications will affect anyone after prolonged use of the drug. Risks do exist, but these should only be considered if you have taken into account the risks associated with taking any prescription medication. As with all prescription medications, individuals taking these drugs should always consult their healthcare provider regarding any possible interactions and allergies that they may have. A plaquenil class action lawsuit is a possible scenario that you may wish to discuss with your doctor.
