Failure to Warn Consumers of Ibuprofen Risks: SJS & TEN
Ibuprofen (Motrin/Advil) is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), which works to reduce inflammation and pain in the body caused by fever, headache, back pain, menstrual cramps, and arthritis. Although Ibuprofen is commonly used, little do people know that it poses risks of serious skin conditions such as Stevens Johnson Syndrome (SJS) and Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis (TEN). The manufacturers of ibuprofen have not only failed to warn consumers, but they have failed to warn physicians as well.
Stevens Johnson Syndrome is a condition of the skin and mucous membranes, which includes painful rashes and blisters spreading throughout the superficial layer of the skin, causing the skin to die and shed. Furthermore, Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis is an even more severe skin condition affecting over 30% of the top layer of the skin, whereas SJS involves less than 10%. Overall, TEN causes death in about 35% of individuals who are afflicted by it. Evidently, the manufacturers have put their profits above consumer safety.
