Actemra Injury Lawyers
What is Actemra?
Actemra is prescribed for moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis and certain types of juvenile arthritis. Actemra is an interleukin-6, or IL-6, receptor antagonist.
Why are Actemra Lawsuits Being Filed?
Rheumatoid arthritis medications carry serious risks, including heart attack, stroke, and certain types of lung disease. Other RA medications such as Humira and Remicade specifically warn of these risks, but the makers of Actemra market the drug as not having these risks. This led to doctors prescribing Actemra to patients who are susceptible to heart and lung injuries.
