Raptiva Drug for Psoriasis Can Cause Deadly Brain Infection  

Posted in ,

The government warned people earlier that taking the Raptiva Drug for Psoriasis can cause deadly brain infections and some Raptiva side effects. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) mentioned three proven cases that after they were taking Raptiva Drug for three years those patients have died. The FDA warned that the drug can cause a serious brain infection called Progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy, this is associated with Raptiva PML.

You may ask what PML is? This is a virus that affects the central nervous system. People whose immune system is severely weakened are the people that are most likely to be exposed to this disease. The usual symptoms of this disease are unusual weakness, changes in vision, loss of coordination, difficulty speaking, and personality changes.

If you know someone who developed PML, meningitis, or one of the members of their family died because of taking Raptiva, then they have the legal rights to financial compensation for their medical bills, pain and suffering, and other damages.

You clearly haven't suffered with debilitating psoriasis if you say that Raptiva made people more sick and caused more damage than the good it did. It's true that in 3 cases, it made 3 people more sick and caused more damage. But that is only 3 cases ... out of who knows how many people taking it all over the world. I tried everything available for more than a decade, and the only medication that worked to get me back to functioning like a real person is Raptiva. It gave me my life back. Until there are better medications available, it may very well be worth the risk to some people to be able to live normal lives, given that, based on what we know now, this risk is apparently miniscule.
