Singulair Class Action Lawsuit and Compensation in 2021 – File Your Claim Here
Individuals living with asthma may have to contend with this condition being a life-long one, with no cure on the horizon. It is thought to have a genesis in a malfunctioning immune system, which is said to attack the alveoli and other structures in a person’s lungs, causing them to constrict which then makes it hard for them to draw in air. When this happens, the patient begins wheezing in an attempt to overcompensate for the low oxygen intake. Asthma sufferers are prescribed inhalers, which are corticosteroid inhalants which are meant to lower inflammation in the airways and lungs so that the patient can resume breathing once again. Asthmatics must always carry their inhalers or similar medications because of the real and present threat of oxygen deprivation and loss of consciousness in the event that they aren’t able to breathe when hit by an asthma attack. In 1998, a drug was launched which is thought to help asthmatics breathe better by inhibiting the production of certain molecules that are thought to set off an inflammatory cascade. The drug in question, Singulair, is a leukotriene inhibitor, which are essentially specialized white blood cells which are responsible for triggering inflammation in the body. The problem with Singulair, however, is that it has been linked to a number of mental health events such as anxiety, depression and psychosis, adverse events that the manufacturer knew about for years but failed to warn the public about the same.
