Two clinical trials of Type2 diabetics taking Johnson & Johnson’s diabetes drug, Invokana, also known also as canagliflozin, have revealed that users are twice as likely to suffer foot and leg amputa­tions than those given a placebo. The U.S. Food and Drug Admin­is­tration is requiring Johnson & Johnson to add new warnings about the risk […]

As we have reported in previous articles, the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2011 ruling in Pliva v. Mensing left patients taking generic drugs with virtually no remedies when they are harmed or killed by defec­tively designed generic drugs.  The irony of the ruling was that in 2008 the Supreme Court ruled in Wyeth v. Levine that […]

The Food and Drug Admin­is­tration has issued new, stronger warnings about the risk of heart attack and stroke from over-the-counter nonsteroidal anti-inflam­­matory drugs “NSAIDs,” including pain relievers ibuprofen and naproxen. The over-the-counter painkillers included in the FDA’s new warning include Aleve (naproxen), Motrin or Advil (ibuprofen) which are normally used to treat things like pain, […]

Consumers have until April 27, 2015 to comment on a new rule for generic drug label changes proposed by the United States Food and Drug Admin­is­tration (FDA). The proposed rule would address the arbitrary inequality created four years ago by the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Pliva v. Mensing, a case in which the court […]

In the U.S., generic drugs dominate our medicine cabinets. Indeed, 80% all prescrip­tions written are filled with generic versions of the brand name drugs prescribed, which saves Americans more than $200 billion annually. But there are no guaranties that generics are as safe or effective as their name brand counter­parts. By law, generics are required […]

The FDA has advised people with diabetes and health care profes­sionals to stop using GenStrip Blood Glucose Test Strips because the strips may report incorrect blood glucose levels. The FDA’s recent inspection found many viola­tions of federal regula­tions intended to assure quality in the manufac­turing of GenStrip Test Strips. The failure to have an adequate […]

The Food and Drug Admin­is­tration (FDA) has issued an Order requiring injectable corti­cos­teroids carry a warning label about the risks of severe adverse effects from epidural injec­tions. Corti­cos­teroids injec­tions into the spine’s epidural space may in rare cases cause death, stroke, permanent blindness, and paralysis. Corti­cos­teroids injec­tions have been commonly used to treat radiating back […]

At Terrell Hogan, we think recall infor­mation is worth repeating to keep your family informed and safe. Defective and dangerous products can cause personal injuries and deaths and need to be taken out of use or repaired. In December, 2013 we notified consumers about the dangers from old and new tires. Dangers from New Tires […]

Toyota is recalling over half of all the Prius hybrids they have ever sold to repair a software problem that can slow down or bring the car to a halt.  The recall includes Prius vehicles produced since early 2009.   The problem with Prius’s software may cause some parts to overheat in driving situa­tions such […]

Specific lots of insulin cartridges used with the t:slim Insulin Pump have been recalled because the cartridges are at risk for leaking, causing the delivery of too much or too little insulin, a serious life-threat­ening event. Consumers should discon­tinue using insulin cartridges labeled with the affected lots. The affected insulin cartridges were shipped on or […]
