As prescribed treatments for overactive bladder (OAB), these medications have garnered attention due to concerns surrounding their association with dementia and related symptoms. The safety of patients should always be a top priority, and the potential risks linked to these drugs have raised important questions within the medical community and among affected individuals and their families.
Our firm is committed to fighting for your rights and advocating for fair compensation for the injuries and suffering caused by these drugs. We believe in holding drug manufacturers accountable for their actions and omissions when it comes to warning patients about potential risks. If you or a loved one took these medications and subsequently experienced dementia or related symptoms, you deserve to have your voice heard and your rights protected.
Drugs prescribed to treat overactive bladder (OAB) – like Ditropan and Ditropan XL – may increase the risk of dementia. Drug manufacturers that make these medications, such as Janssen and its parent company, Johnson & Johnson, may face lawsuits because they did not adequately warn patients that the drugs are causally associated with dementia and related symptoms such as memory loss, language difficulties, confusion, loss of the ability to care for oneself, and personality changes.
Several studies have identified a connection between using Ditropan XL and an increased risk of developing dementia. The risk may be 1.5 to 2 times higher for individuals who have taken the medication, and it can persist for up to 20 years after discontinuation.
People or loved ones of those who took drugs to treat their OAB may be eligible to take legal action against these drug companies and may obtain compensation for their injuries.
