Rising cases of mass-tort linked medications reveal a concerning truth about the pharmaceutical industry. Widely used drugs like opioids, antidepressants, antipsychotics, and certain statins, often associated with mass torts, can cause severe side effects, addiction, and even death. To avoid public trials, pharmaceutical companies often settle lawsuits privately, continuing to prescribe potentially harmful medications. However, the issue is not limited to mass-tort linked drugs. Every day, pharmaceuticals like blood thinners, antibiotics, and acid reflux medicines can cause serious complications such as internal bleeding, tendon rupture, nerve damage, kidney disease, and vitamin deficiency. Often, these drug side-effects are underreported, and their warnings are minimized or not mentioned, leaving consumers uninaware of potential dangers. Profiteering, aggressive marketing, data manipulation of clinical trials, and non-disclosure of side effects by pharmaceutical companies exacerbate the mass tort issue. However, with education, pushing for transparency and accountability, and supporting safer alternatives, we could improve the current situation and work towards a healthier future.
