Allergy Medicine Singulair Side Effects

When you purchase allergy medication, you should be able to trust that the risks and complications are known. You should not have to worry about unexpected side effects of any allergy medicine that has been brought to market. 

Unfortunately, many consumers have suffered side effects from Singulair. Singulair (montelukast) is a commonly used prescription medication. It is intended to treat seasonal allergies and the symptoms of asthma. 

However, many Singulair users have experienced mental health complications as a result of using the drug. These risks were previously unknown but have since come to light. 

If you believe that you suffer from mental health difficulties from allergy medicine Singulair’s side effects, do not hesitate. Make sure to speak with an attorney about the specific circumstances of your case. 

You may be able to pursue significant compensation for the costs and losses that your medication’s side effects have caused. Victims of harmful products have the right to seek financial recovery if they develop a medical condition. 

In the year 2020, the FDA began labeling Singulair with its most severe warning. This warning label signals the possibility of severe mood shifts and behavioral changes.

  • Have Allergy Medicine Singulair Side Effects Lawsuits Been Filed?

    Singulair is prescribed for children and adults with serious asthma or allergy symptoms. However, some research has shown that this medication can cause serious mental health concerns. 

    In March 2020, the FDA began labeling Singulair with a warning to inform consumers of potential side effects. As a result of these mental health outcomes, many individuals and families have filed lawsuits against the drug’s manufacturer. 

    These lawsuits claim that Merck, the manufacturer of Singulair, designed a defective product. Plaintiffs also claim that Merck was negligent and failed to warn consumers about the potential allergy medicine Singulair side effects. 

    The company began selling Singulair in 1998, and claimants have argued that Merck was responsible for informing them about the possible negative side effects. Some patients have suffered from anxiety or depressive disorder.  

    Victims of this defective drug have the right to pursue financial compensation for the costs and losses associated with their conditions. If you or a loved one has suffered mental health problems because of Singulair, reach out to the skilled personal injury attorneys at Morgan and Morgan to explore your options.

  • How Can You Determine If You Qualify for a Singulair Lawsuit?

    If you wonder whether you have valid grounds for a lawsuit, it is critical to speak with a product liability lawyer. The Morgan & Morgan team has handled numerous claims regarding defective pharmaceuticals. 

    If you or a family member began suffering from a mental illness after being prescribed Singulair, you might qualify for compensation. 

    Many negative outcomes have resulted from taking this medication. Some of the most common mental and behavioral health concerns associated with Singulair include the following: 

    • Suicidal thoughts or ideation
    • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
    • Death from suicide
    • Major depressive disorder
    • Psychiatric disorders requiring hospitalization
    • Homicidal thoughts or fantasies
    • Anxiety disorder
    • Other psychological issues 

    If you qualify for an allergy medicine Singulair side effects lawsuit, it is vital to take legal action quickly. In most instances, victims must file a claim for an injury or illness caused by Singulair within three years. 

    The statute of limitations on this type of case will vary by state. The timeline for your legal claim will also depend on when you were prescribed the drug and when you discovered the negative side effects. 

    No matter the circumstances of your product liability claim, make sure to contact the legal firm of Morgan and Morgan as soon as possible. Our accomplished team has the experience and skills necessary to diligently pursue justice in your case. 

    In some instances, a family member can file a legal claim on behalf of the victim. This is typical in cases where the person suffering from side effects is a minor or has died. 

    When parents or guardians file on behalf of their children, they can pursue compensation for the costs that they incurred. For instance, parents may receive financial recovery for the child’s medical bills.  

    If the victim has died from the side effects of Singulair, the surviving family members may be able to claim financial compensation through a wrongful death claim. These lawsuits function similarly to other personal injury cases. 

    In a wrongful death case, the plaintiff represents the victim. The victim’s representative can seek compensation for any costs resulting from the victim’s passing. 

    Whether you are hoping to file a claim yourself or on behalf of someone you love, the accomplished legal specialists at Morgan & Morgan can help. You should not be responsible for the costs and harms caused by a negligent pharmaceutical corporation. 

    If, after taking allergy medicine Singulair, side effects have caused you or a loved one harm, you deserve justice. Let the knowledgeable team at Morgan and Morgan help.

  • How Can You Pursue a Defective Product Liability Claim?

    If you have sustained an injury or illness because of a hazardous prescription drug like Singulair, you may have grounds for a valid product liability claim. Proving liability in this type of case can be very difficult and typically requires the efforts of a trained legal professional.  

    The specific regulations and laws surrounding product liability differ from state to state. Still, to successfully pursue this type of claim, the plaintiff will need to provide evidence of the following:

    The Plaintiff Suffered Losses, Illness, or Injuries

    If you did not experience actual harm or losses, you will not be eligible for financial recovery through a legal claim. For instance, suppose that you took Singulair and did not experience any negative mental health effects. 

    The fact that you could have suffered illness is not enough cause for a valid product liability case. A dangerous prescription drug must cause actual harm before you can successfully file suit against the manufacturers.

    The Product Is Defective, Faulty, or Hazardous

    The plaintiff in a product liability claim must also prove that the product contains a defect or flaw. This can be difficult to prove in the case of prescription drugs.  

    Typically, victims of dangerous Singulair side effects will need to claim that the manufacturers or sellers failed to provide adequate warnings. This type of product liability claim is known as a “failure-to-warn” case. 

    Singulair did not include appropriate warnings until 2020. So if you took the medication without being made aware of the possible negative consequences, you could be owed compensation. 

    Drug manufacturers have a duty to inform consumers of the potentially dangerous qualities of their products. Failure to adequately warn patients about the risks of an allergy medication may result in the corporation facing significant liability for the damages.

    The Product’s Defect Was the Cause of Your Injury

    Plaintiffs in this type of case need to show that the injury or illness was the result of using the defective product. 

    In other words, it is not enough to prove that your injury occurred while you were using the product. Showing that the use of Singulair led to the mental health problems that you suffered may be difficult. Because of this, it is vital to hire a skilled product liability attorney to fight for you. 

    The knowledgeable professionals at Morgan & Morgan will review the facts of your case to build the strongest claim possible. We will consult experts and fight to show that the defective medication was the cause of your illness or injuries.

    You Used the Product as Intended

    Finally, plaintiffs must provide evidence that they used the product in the way that the manufacturers intended. In a drug-related claim, you will need to show that you took the medication as it was prescribed. 

    Speaking with the attorneys at the firm of Morgan and Morgan will give you a greater likelihood of a successful outcome in your case. Do not settle for less than your defective medication claim is worth.

  • What Types of Compensation Can I Recover Through a Product Liability Claim?

    Most victims underestimate the costs and losses that they will experience after being harmed by a faulty product. After taking the allergy medicine Singulair, side effects can be severe and life-changing. 

    Victims can pursue compensation for any financial or personal losses that resulted from the use of the defective medication. The term for compensatory payments in this type of legal claim is “damages.”  

    Following are some of the most common examples of damages in product liability claims: 

    • Physical pain and suffering
    • Mental trauma and psychological harm
    • Depression and anxiety
    • Current and past medical bills
    • Expected costs of medical care in the future
    • Therapy or counseling
    • Loss of enjoyment of life
    • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) 

    Calculating the value of a legal claim is complex. It is critical to speak with a seasoned product liability lawyer to determine the total damages in your case. 

  • What Are Contingency Fees, and Are They Important?

    A contingency fee payment structure is one way in which legal professionals are compensated for their work. When you hire a lawyer who works on contingency, you will agree to pay them a specific percentage of the financial recovery from your case. 

    You will not pay anything unless your attorney secures the financial compensation that you need. After your claim is successfully negotiated or won through a trial, the agreed-upon percentage of recovery is allocated to cover attorneys’ fees. 

    Do not hire any tort attorney or firm that demands payment before resolving your claim. A contingency fee approach ensures that your legal representative is fighting hard on your behalf.  

    Morgan & Morgan proudly uses a contingency fee approach. When you hire our firm to represent you, the fee is free unless we get the money you are owed.
