Injury Law Firm Announces New Informative Graphic on Common Medicines That Have Allegedly Been Linked to Stevens Johnson Syndrome
Date:5/18/2013

(PRWEB) May 18, 2013

According to the the Stevens Johnson Syndrome Foundation, Stevens Johnson Syndrome (SJS), also known as Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis, is a severe allergic reaction usually to medicine (i). The first signs of SJS involve flu-like symptoms but it can quickly advance causing blistering and large areas of dead skin. Some severe reactions can even cause death. SJS can develop at any time and seriously affect both children and adults. In fact, the former NBA player, Manute Bol, passed away after he received kidney medicine which caused SJS (ii). His story is one story among many that tell of severe reactions from common medicines.

According to Adverse Events, an organization that standardizes FDA adverse event reports, SJS has been allegedly caused by such drugs as Advil, Bextra, Dilantin, Motrin, and Tegretol. 945 patients taking Dilantin have alleged that they suffered SJS after taking the drug (iii). In the past, the FDA has also recalled drugs because of their connection to SJS. According to a 2005 CNN report, the FDA ordered Pfizer to recall the arthritis drug, Bextra, after the drug was linked to heart risks and SJS. This recall came shortly after Merck pulled Vioxx for similar concerns. The recalls of these two drugs also lead the FDA to impose heightened warnings on another arthritis drug Celebrex (iv).

The SJS infographic provides information on the progression of SJS as well as details on certain conditions that SJS can cause. These conditions include arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, and other serious conditions. Additionally, it provides statistics on SJS and specific drugs.
