Patients diagnosed with gout are often prescribed Uloric. Gout is a condition that causes painful arthritis in the joints. Uloric treats gout by lowering the levels of uric acid in the blood. In February 2019, the FDA linked Uloric to a higher risk of death and issued a black box warning on the drug. Black box warnings are meant to show a drug’s severe and sometimes life-threatening negative side effects.
Any patients who have taken Uloric for gout treatment may be eligible to file a lawsuit and receive compensation for damages caused by the drug. An experienced drug injury attorney can help you hold the negligent manufacture of Uloric accountable for your injuries or a loved one’s death.
