Evidence is mounting that the sinus drug Ketek (telithromycin) may cause fatal drug reactions including liver failure, respiratory problems, and heart problems as well as serious adverse drug reactions causing liver failure and the need for a liver transplant.  The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recently taken action to limit distribution of Ketek, but Ketek is still available and many consumers, doctors, and patients may not realize the dangers that Ketek poses.

If you have been taking Ketek and have suffered severe liver problems including liver failure requiring a liver transplant or have lost a loved one that was taking Ketek from liver failure, it is important to seek to medical assistance.  If you have questions regarding a liver failure claim or other Ketek claims, please feel free to e-mail Texas Ketek Lawyer Jason Coomer with your name & contact information.

Ketek Related Health Problems can include Liver Failure

Ketek is a drug that was designed to clear up sinus infections, but unfortunately can have a devastating effect on a person's health including causing death, liver failure, breathing problems, nerve problems, or liver damage.  People taking Ketek have described experiencing chills, trouble walking, dizziness, leg pain, fevers,  jaundice, blurred vision, loss of consciousness, neurological problems, worsening of breathing problems,  and vomiting blood.  These symptoms can last for several weeks and can end in complete liver failure resulting in death.

If you have been taking Ketek and have experienced these severe health problems or drug-induced hepatitis seek immediate medical treatment.  Inform your medical providers that you have been taking Ketek.  Sometimes ceasing taking Ketek is enough for the body to start to recover, other times a liver transplant is necessary as Ketek may cause severe liver damage including necrosis.

Since the Food and Drug Administration has learned of the risks caused by Ketek, the drug has been withdrawn for the treatment of sinus infections, but Ketek is still available to patients who have a certain type of pneumonia.  The manufacturer of Ketek and the FDA have been criticized for the safety trials commissioned regarding Ketek as well as the approval process. Criticisms of Sanofi-Aventis and the FDA include fraud, malpractice, conflicts of interest, falsified results, and hiding problems in the approval process.

If you are taking Ketek and develop symptoms of of liver problems, it is important that you contact a health care provider immediately to discuss whether you should continue taking the drug. Signs of liver problems include loss of appetite, nausea, dark urine, pale stools, jaundice, and itching or abdominal pain.
