I was in a Year long process of being treated for Hepatitis
C with a drug
called Peg-Intron. During the course
of treatment right at the end I
suffered five grand mal seizures which ended up in hospitalization
helicopter ride. Since then I have experience peripherial
neuropathy and eye problems and who knows what else.
The manufacturer Schering had me sign a prior release
but during the prescribed treatment they came out with a revised
set of precautions stating the new possible side effects.
I have enclosed the insert which was released right about
the time I was completing my course of treatments. Had
I know the severity of these after market problems (see
page 3 of insert) I doubt I would have
pursued treatment. The addendum is in the post marketing
experience paragraph, which was not in the prior insert, and
therefore I had no possibility of knowing possible dangers
involved with this treatment. Do I have any legal recourse?
