Cure or Killer?

The most potent threat that many of us face on a daily basis is nothing more than a scrape or an illness that we pick up from someone around us.  Although, there are an array of vaccines and medicines available to help those who do get sick or injured, one of the most popular drugs on the market has, frighteningly, recently been linked to serious heart conditions.

Zithromax, commonly called Z-Pak, is an antibiotic used to help fight a variety of bacterial infections, but a recent article in the New England Journal of Medicine has linked this drug to cardiac complications.

It’s almost certain that a great number of current and former users will need the services of a Z-Pak lawyer soon, as it seems class action litigation is all but guaranteed.  The complications listed at this point include cardiac death and irregular heartbeats that require emergency treatment.  At this point, Z-Pak is still available with a prescription to those who need it, but you might think twice about taking this medicine if you have a history of heart problems.
