Fort Lauderdale Uloric Injury Attorneys

Helping You Get Justice from Careless Pharmaceutical Companies

If you’ve been taking Uloric to treat gout, it is reasonable for you to expect to receive medical benefits from its use. However, you also deserve to know about the risks associated with Uloric so you can weigh them against the drug’s benefits. However, if you’ve developed severe medical complications from using Uloric, you might be entitled to receive compensation for the economic losses stemming from its use.

To help determine the nature of your right to recover for injuries caused by using Uloric, you should consult an experienced Ft. Lauderdale Uloric injury attorney for legal advice. At Schlesinger Law Offices, P.A. we are firmly committed to standing up against large international pharmaceutical companies to advocate for our clients for injuries caused by unreasonably dangerous medical products.

What Are the Risks of Using Uloric?

Uloric is drug produced by the Takeda Pharmaceutical Company to treat gout – a condition characterized by an excessive buildup of uric acid in the blood, causing needle-like crystalline molecules to form in a person’s joints and extremities. As a result, those with gout can suffer intense pain, swelling, and tenderness in joint tissue. Although gout can affect anyone, those who suffer from diabetes and kidney disease have an increased risk of developing gout.

The active chemical ingredient in Uloric is called febuxostat, which has been marketed as a pharmaceutical to treat gout since 2009. During clinic trials, research data suggested a correlation between the use of febuxostat and an increased risk of death due to cardiac conditions.

In 2018, a postmarket study of febuxostat involving more than 6,000 patients concluded there was a significant correlation between the drug and fatal cardiac events. As a result, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) imposed a “black box” warning on the drug regarding the increased risk of cardiovascular death for Uloric.
