Mifeprex (RU-486)

Mifeprex is also known as mifepristone and RU-486. It is a pill that causes a medically induced abortion about seven weeks after a woman’s pregnancy starts. This pharmaceutical product is an alternative to a surgically induced abortion and blocks a hormone that is required in order to carry on the pregnancy.

Mifeprex is made by Danco Laboratories. The drug was first approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in September 2000. More than 460,000 pregnant women have taken the pill to end their pregnancies.

It has been known that use of Mifeprex has serious medical side effects. There have been more than 600 reported cases of adverse affects associated with the use of Mifeprex.

The known cases of side effects include hemorrhaging, infections, sepsis leading to septic shock and even death. The reported five deaths with the use of Mifeprex leading to septic shock have been associated with a bacterial infection called Clostridium sordellii.

Most of the Mifeprex lawsuits allege that the manufacturer, Danco Laboratories, chose not to correctly and appropriately warn users of the potential dangers associated with taking Mifeprex.

The list of the severe side effects from the use of Mifeprex is long.

  1. Vomiting or diarrhea
  2. Severe stomach pain
  3. Shortness of breath
  4. Vaginal discomfort
  5. Itching
  6. Fever

Client Reviews
“We were devastated when our 31 year-old son was killed by a negligent driver. Kreisman Law Offices did everything to help us through this very difficult time, including coming out to the house several times which was a comfort. My wife and I were extremely pleased with Mr. Kreisman’s compassion and care for this very tragic and troubling time.” C.B.
“Bob Kreisman did everything possible in handling the trial of this case. It was devastating that I traumatically lost my leg above the knee in this truck accident. However, it was not an easy case to win. His staff was so prepared for the trial that it was not surprising that the settlement offers continued to rise until we finally accepted the multi-million settlement while the jury was still deciding the case. My wife and I were delighted that we could secure our future with this settlement. We thank Mr. Kreisman and his incredible staff for working so hard for our benefit.” T.P.
“My mother died because doctors dropped the ball. I called Robert Kreisman and he immediately set up an appointment for my entire family. We met at his offices and I was very comfortable that he would do the best for my dad and my brothers. He spent hours with all of us in preparing for depositions and he hired top notch experts, all of which contributed to an incredible settlement before trial. I know that he is dedicated to his cases and particularly to the people he works for and the people who work with him. He continues to be generous in contributing annually to my mother’s memory and to make known to the public the signs and symptoms of brain tumors.” V.S.
“My dad was ignored and mistreated at the nursing home that we placed him in. It didn’t take long for us to realize that we made a big mistake, particularly after my dad developed these terrible bedsores. We transferred him as we were contacting Mr. Kreisman. He was referred to us by a lawyer we have known for a long time and respect his opinion. Mr. Kreisman and his staff worked tirelessly to resolve this case. We were fortunate to have his services and will recommend him to anyone.” T.J.
