Like many other medications, Labetalol does come with the risk of side effects. But unlike if you get a bad burrito, the side effects from Labetalol can be severe. If you've taken Labetalol and have experienced side effects, keep reading to learn how DoNotPay can help you file and get a resolution.
Did Your Doctor Take a Complete History?
Before a doctor prescribes any medication, they should get your medical history and the current meds you're taking so that a new drug doesn't interfere with another one or that it's safe for you to take. It is also to prevent you from losing when you file in the future.
Labetalol has side effects that can be pretty serious. If you have any of these reactions, you should call your doctor or 911 immediately. There are two reasons for this: one, your health is at risk, and two, you need to document any problems you're having.
- Allergic reactions like hives or facial, lips, tongue, or throat swelling
- Feeling drowsy or tired
- Fainting, weak pulse, numbness
- Shortness of breath
- Sudden weight gain
- Severe headache, pounding in your ears or neck
- Blurred vision
- Nausea or vomiting
Older people may also feel dizzy or lightheaded when they take this drug. These reactions could be signs of liver problems.
- Jaundice (yellowing of the skin)
- Loss of appetite
- Stomach pain in the upper right side
- Flu-like symptoms
- Dark urine
If you believe that Labetalol caused your health problems, you can try to seek compensation. DoNotPay is here to tell you how.
Filing a Complaint Against Labetalol's Manufacturer
Since this is a generic drug, several manufacturers are making Labetalol. Check your prescription bottle to find out which company made yours if you need to file a complaint. For the manufacturer to take your complaint seriously, you'll need to document your reaction to the drug. You need to explain exactly what your symptoms are, how long they lasted, how long since your last dose, and anything unusual that happened that day, like a hard workout or dietary change.
Drug Manufacturers Play Hardball
Drug companies have fleets of experienced legal teams to help them avoid the responsibility for bad medical outcomes. If you're going to sue them for damages you need records to document how Labetalol negatively impacted your health and how the manufacturer neglected to alert the public of that particular possibility. You'll have to prove one of these three things:
|Defective design||When the drugs side effects outweigh the benefits|
|Manufacturing defect||The drug's ingredients were contaminated or compromised somewhere in the process|
|Insufficient warnings||The instructions and warnings on the drug's packaging did not address all the possible side effects or provide sufficient warnings about usage|
To get the company's attention, much less a settlement, you must present your case professionally, in detail, and with facts to back up your claims. The more severe your injuries from Labetalol, the better your chances for compensation: cardiovascular complications (stroke, heart attack), liver damage, or birth defects.
