According to a report from CNN Health, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued warnings to a number of companies concerning fraudulent claims on over-the-counter STD drugs. These drugs are being advertised as a way to treat or prevent sexually transmitted diseases. However the truth is, no over-the-counter medication is available on the market that can treat an STD. In addition, STDs cannot be prevented with drugs. Only a licensed healthcare provider can prescribe an appropriate type of STD drug, one approved by the FDA and available in a prescription form. So far 12 companies have been issued warnings that they are violating federal law by making fraudulent claims on the ability to treat STDs such as AIDS, HIV, Chlamydia, herpes and genital warts. Not properly treated, these types of disease can cause additional medical complications and put the health of the public at risk with the potential for spreading it. When a drug is marketed as one thing but could result in further injuries, it may lead to the filing of a dangerous drug claim. A New York dangerous drug attorney can evaluate your case to determine if your injuries were preventable and who may be held negligent.
