The pharmaceutical companies generate tens of billions of dollars every single year. This is a strong motivation for many to create and market new drugs. Many times drugs are tested, but the amount of testing or type of testing may not be sufficient or fails to discover serious and dangerous side effects. When drugs cause harm to an individual without proper warning, the company that manufactured it, and sometimes medical professional who prescribed it may be held liable for damages. Shocking side effects such as suicidal tendencies have recently been linked to psychotropic drugs such as Prozac and Ritalin. In a study, Paxil was one of the most prescribed antidepressants in America. Recently it has been linked to a number of teenage suicides.
