US Drug Watchdog Urges Users of Prolia To Call Them If in the Last Year Their Shot Has Increased to Over $2000 Per Injection by Their Healthcare Provider-Did the Bill Also Mention Infusion Center?
If you have been using the drug Prolia for the last few years and the price increased in the last year call us at 866-714-6466. When we say price increase, we mean by over $1000 per dose.”
WASHINGTON, DC, USA, August 22, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ — The US Drug Watchdog is a consumer advocate for consumers in the United States and they are focused in on recalled, defective or overpriced pharmaceutical products or medical devices. About a week ago the group was contacted by a consumer in a Gulf Coast US State related to the fact that her injection for a drug called ‘ Prolia’ had increased by thousands of dollars per injection. This is in no way an allegation the drug maker had-has increased their price. The suggestion here is the local healthcare company had dramatically increased their price for giving the drug to one of their patients—by thousands of dollars as they would be happy to discuss at 866-714-6466.
Another odd fact about this situation is the local healthcare company in this US State was requiring the patient who was receiving the ‘Prolia’ shot–to go to an ‘infusion center’ for cancer patients-to receive this medication. Even odder the healthcare company in this US State could not explain the gigantic price increase for the Prolia medication-nor could they explain why patients receiving this medication were required to go to a cancer treatment center’s infusion center. https://
The US Drug Watchdog says, “If you have been using the drug Prolia for the last few years and the price increased dramatically in the last year please call us at 866-714-6466. When we say dramatic price increase, we mean by over $1000 per dose. We are also very interested in talking with users of Prolia who were required to go to an infusion center-rather than receiving a shot at a doctor’s office.” https://
For nearly two decades the US Drug Watchdog has been assisting consumers in the United States with a focus on defective or dangerous drugs, medical devices and or medical products. There is no other group in the United States like the US Drug Watchdog. https://
US Drug Watchdog Warns All US Consumers to Avoid Overseas Call Centers Selling Drugs-Why Risk Your Life-And to Always Make Sure the Medication You Pick Up at a Pharmacy Are Yours
According to the US Drug Watchdog, “Based on what we know about these types of offshore pharmacies-they do not care about the quality of the products they sell, and a consumer is risking their life buying these types of off-shore medications.”
“We are appealing to all consumers in the United States to steer clear of any online pharmacy-where it is not obvious the company is based in the USA. Why roll the dice on your health?”
WASHINGTON, DC, April 20, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ — According to the US Drug Watchdog, “We are appealing to all consumers in the United States to steer clear of any online pharmacy-where it is not obvious the company is based in the USA. A couple of obvious clues is when you call the ‘pharmacy’s’ toll free number-and the operators have an Eastern European or Indian Accent. Another clue is their medications are much more expensive than similar prescription drugs at Walgreens or Walmart.
“Based on what we know about these types of offshore pharmacies-they do not care about the quality of the products they sell, and a consumer is literally risking their life buying these types of off-shore medications. Another clue about these operations is they will mail the prescription to you via international mail—where it might take two or three weeks to get a delivery. Finally-we are warning US consumers to not use off-shore pharmacies-because when you give the customer service person your credit card number-you might become a victim of identity theft-or fraud.
“We want to emphasize in many instances the international ‘online pharmacies’ are run by organized criminals, and they do not care about customer satisfaction. Do not buy medications online-unless you can verify the company is based in the USA.” https://USDrugWatchdog.Com
The US Drug Watchdog is also warning US Consumers to be on the lookout for US based pharmacy errors and mistakes–side effects of a pharmacy medication error may include:
*Death (example a consumer with a severe heart condition is mistakenly given antibiotics. Some antibiotics can cause arrhythmia with a person with serious heart issues.)
*Hospitalization (example a pharmacist mistakenly gives a pregnant woman an epilepsy drug, the anticoagulant, or a drug to treat bipolar disorder). These types of drugs have all been linked to severe birth defects.
*Allergic reactions or a person having a severe reaction that could cause hospitalization.
*In most instances pharmacy prescription errors are caused by, labeling errors, mix-ups with another patient’s order, dispensing the wrong drug or wrong dosage, incompatible health conditions or adverse interactions with other medications.
Note to US consumers from the US Drug Watchdog: “If you possess proof your pharmacy gave you the wrong prescription or someone else’s prescription, please call us at 866-714-6466 – especially if you were injured by the mistake. We want to make certain you get compensated. However, as mentioned we will need proof of the mistake either being you still are in possession of the incorrect prescription, or your sales receipt indicates the error.” https://USDrugWatchdog.Com
US Drug Watchdog Urges Women Nationwide to Demand Their Physician Explain the Risks of Using a Mesh Product to Treat Urinary Incontinence or Pelvic Organ Prolapse Before It is Used in a Surgical Procedure-Malpractice Should Be on the Table
WASHINGTON, Nov. 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The US Drug Watchdog says, “Over a decade ago we were one of the most quoted sources in the nation for victims of transvaginal mesh failures and we helped hundreds of women who were harmed by these types of medical products. We moved on from this initiative until a few months ago when we received a call from a young woman on the West Coast who had medical procedure using a mesh product to treat urinary incontinence very early in 2022.”
“The medical doctor who used a vaginal mesh product on this young mother-never bothered to mention the serious issues with these types of surgical mesh products. These are extremely serious problems that have persisted for more than a decade with these types of medical products. How many women will have their lives destroyed because they underwent a surgical procedure using a mesh product in their vagina to treat urinary incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse?”
“If you are a woman about to undergo a medical procedure where a mesh product is going to be used to treat urinary incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse-please ask your doctor about the risks-and have a witness there.” https://USDrugWatchdog.Com
When the US Drug Watchdog spoke with the young woman it occurred to the group this might be a case of medical malpractice-because the woman’s doctor never mentioned very serious issues with mesh products in general, and more specifically mesh products designed to treat women who were suffering from urinary incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse. The Watchdog contacted a dozen law firms, and no one wanted this young woman’s possible case—-the law firms they contacted simply wanted to sign the woman up for a class action-aka-multi district litigation-MDL.
Some symptoms of a vaginal mesh procedure-failure include:
- Extreme pain
- In some instances, the inability to have sexual intercourse
According to the US Drug Watchdog, “If you are a partner at a law firm that does medical malpractice cases on a nationwide basis, and you might have the ability to assist women who have had a catastrophic mesh surgery in 2022-that was intended to treat urinary incontinence or pelvic prolapse-please give us a call at 866-714-6466. There are probably a lot of other women who need your services-nationwide.” https://USDrugWatchdog.Com
