ARKANSAS TASINGA INJURY ATTORNEYS
Dangerous Drug Lawsuits
A Tasigna lawsuit may be an option for patients who were prescribed the medication and suffered severe adverse reactions. Research shows Tasigna is linked to atherosclerosis, a disease that causes the arteries to thicken and harden due to the buildup of plaque.
Tasigna causes a quick onset constriction of the blood vessels in patients, leading to severe and sometimes fatal complications. Thousands of patients taking this drug have suffered from these serious complications.

Dangerous Side Effects Linked To Tasigna
Taken twice a day to help patients suffering from chronic myelogenous leukemia, Tasigna works by interfering with the protein that signals cancer cells to multiply inside a patient’s body. Unfortunately, the manufacturers of Tasigna failed to properly warn patients of the harmful side effects caused by the drug.
Thousands of patients around the world have experienced complications and severe side effects while taking this drug, including:
- Itching, nausea. and headache
- Skin rash
- Back pain
- Swelling of the hands, feet, or ankles
- Unusual or rapid weight gain
- Limb amputation
- Signs of liver disease
Tasigna may be linked to atherosclerosis, a serious disease in which plaque builds up inside the arteries. According to the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, atherosclerosis affects arteries in the body including the heart, brain, legs, pelvis, arms, and kidneys. Lack of adequate blood circulation, primarily in the legs, can cause serious infections and tissue death that may require amputation.
Since Tasigna, produced by the Swiss pharmaceutical company Novartis, hit the market in 2010 thousands of lawsuits have been filed against them. In 2013 Novartis paid $390 million for illegal kickbacks to physicians who were prescribing the drug to their patients, misbranding and false advertisement.
