prescription drug cases


When prescription drugs work the way they are supposed to, they can vastly improve quality of life.

But, sometimes, the medications people take have drastic consequences. Unknown to them, these pharmaceutical drugs are linked to the development of diseases and conditions, some of them serious and even fatal.

If you believe that a prescription drug has hurt you or your loved one, you may be entitled to compensation. Pogust Goodhead are Pennsylvania attorneys skilled at representing people who are harmed by pharmaceutical drugs, medical devices, medical malpractice, discrimination, or simply by someone else’s negligence. Contact us at 888-348-6787 to learn how we may be able to help you.

Did You Take a Prescription Drug for Iron Deficiency Anemia (IDA)?

Iron deficiency anemia, caused when the blood lacks adequate red blood cells to transport oxygen to the body’s tissues, leaves those who suffer from the condition feeling tired and out of breath. As the illness progresses, individuals may find that they develop cold hands and feet, experience headaches, and feel weak, dizzy, and lightheaded.

The standard treatment for iron deficiency anemia is taking iron supplements orally, along with vitamin C to enhance absorption. However, it can take months for the body’s iron levels to become optimal. Moreover, many people find that they cannot tolerate oral doses of iron, particularly if they are taking antacids or have impaired gastric acid production.

For people who prefer a quick remedy, or who cannot tolerate oral iron supplementation, doctors may prescribe an intravenous iron replacement.

Injectafer Has Been Linked to Severe Hypophosphatemia (HPP)

The drug Injectafer (ferric carboxymaltose) is an iron replacement product designed to work quickly to restore iron levels. The drug is injected intravenously by a healthcare professional in two doses, seven days apart. How much of the drug you receive depends on how much you weigh; the maximum cumulative dose per treatment (over the course of two injections) should not exceed 1500 mg.

Nausea and irritation at the injection site are common, warned-of, side effects.
A more severe and unwarned of side effect is Severe Hypophosphatemia (HPP).
If you experience confusion, weakness, or an irregular heartbeat after being treated with Injectafer for your iron deficiency anemia, it could also be a sign that you have developed severe hypophosphatemia (HPP), which is a severe deficiency of phosphate (phosphorous) in the body. Typically, this condition develops when people either cannot absorb phosphate through their intestines or they are malnourished. However, severe hypophosphatemia has also been linked to drugs like Injectafer.

Clinical studies involving Injectafer overwhelmingly point to Injectafer’s propensity to cause hypophosphatemia and severe hypophosphatemia at rates drastically higher than its competitor iron supplements. Notably, Injectafer does not warn about severe hypophosphatemia, and in fact downplays the type of hypophosphatemia that a patient may experience by using descriptors in its labeling such as “asymptomatic” and “transient.” Just the opposite is true: severe hypophosphatemia is incredibly dangerous and can result in long-term damage, or even death.

One very recent clinical study found severe hypophosphatemia occurring in 38.7% of over 1,000 individuals tested who had taken Injectafer, versus a rate of only .4% for individuals who took a competitor product. Another study estimated that Injectafer presented a 20-fold risk of hypophosphatemia over its competitor iron supplement.

Many experts in the field believe Injectafer’s propensity to cause severe hypophosphatemia at such greater rates has something to do with the gene FGF23, which regulates a protein called fibroblast growth factor 23. Too much fibroblast growth factor 23, and the kidneys stop reabsorbing phosphate. Research shows that, following an intravenous iron injection, FGF23 increases dramatically.

What Is the Prognosis for Severe Hypophosphatemia?

Depending on its severity, chronic HPP may have no symptoms and can go unnoticed. Typically, it results from an underlying hormonal condition such as Cushing’s Disease. Because the levels of phosphate become low slowly, over a period of time, it is a less serious condition.

Severe HPP, on the other hand, is a dangerous condition signaling a rapid, sudden drop in phosphate levels. It can lead to seizures, muscle weakness, respiratory failure, heart failure, coma, and even death if not treated in time. Mild or moderate forms of the condition may be treated with oral phosphate and vitamin D supplementation; severe cases require intravenous injections of phosphate. Severe hypophosphatemia has also been linked to conditions such as rhabdomyolysis and osteomalacia (a long-term bone disease).

Managing Partner | CEO

Tom graduated from the University of Oxford, Magdalen College, with a degree in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics. He also holds a Master’s degree in Politics and Education Policy from the University of Cambridge, Clare College.

Tom subsequently qualified as a Barrister, graduating from City University, London and the University of Law. 

Since being called to the Bar in 2010, Tom has dedicated his career to representing the interests of individuals from all around the world in litigation against some of the world’s most powerful companies. 

He is currently litigating two of the largest group litigations in UK legal history (claims against BHP and Volkswagen) and, over the course of his career, he has successfully recovered tens of millions of pounds in settlements and verdicts. 

Passionate about business and human rights, Tom believes that whilst capitalism is the world’s most powerful tool to lift people out of poverty, transnational corporations must be held to account for violations of the environmental, social, and competitive orders. 

Tom has a love for the country of Brazil and its people. He initiated the Fundão Dam litigation and has been travelling to Brazil numerous times to meet with current and potential claimants. He finds the state of Minas Gerais, with its landscape scattered with the scars of the extractive industries, reminiscent of his upbringing at the foot of the SIrhowy Valley in Pontymister, Wales. 

Sócio Administrador

Tom é formado pelo Magdalen College da University of Oxford, com graduação em Filosofia, Política e Economia e mestre em Política e Política Educacional pela Universidade de Cambridge, Clare College. Na sequência, qualificou-se como advogado pela City University, de Londres, e pela University of Law. 

Ao longo de sua carreira, dedicou-se a representar os interesses de indivíduos de todo o mundo em litígios contra algumas das empresas mais 
poderosas do mundo e recuperou com sucesso dezenas de milhões de libras em acordos e veredictos. 

Apaixonado por negócios e direitos humanos, Tom acredita que, embora o capitalismo seja a ferramenta mais poderosa do mundo para tirar as pessoas da pobreza, as empresas transnacionais devem ser responsabilizadas por violações da ordem ambiental, social e competitiva. 

O amor que tem pelo Brasil e seu povo levaram-no a fazer várias viagens ao país nos últimos dois anos. Tom encontra, no estado de Minas Gerais e sua paisagem marcada pelas cicatrizes das indústrias extrativas, lembranças de sua educação aos pés do Vale de Sirhowy, em Pontymister, no País de Gales.
