Serious Side Effect
Many of us are given no choice but to take medication when we are diagnosed with certain diseases. But I am always aware of what medication I take and understand thoroughly about its indication, mechanism and side effects. Not that I don't trust in the doctors' knowledge or prescribing decision, but I truly understand the risk that we could get from drug consumption after some period.

Raptiva is a drug which is used to cure Psoriasis and you should have seen in on the TV commercial before. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is investigating the psoriasis drug Raptiva for a possible link to a rare, but often deadly, brain infection called progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML). At least two people have died and others may also have developed PML while taking Raptiva, made by Genentech. Raptiva has also been associated with meningitis, immune-mediated hemolytic anemia, and other life-threatening infections.

If you know anyone around you has taken Raptiva and developed Raptiva PML, meningitis, or suffered another injury, they may have legal rights to financial compensation. You can share this link with them and know more about the Raptiva side effects that induced by Raptiva.
