Daypro, which is generically known as Oxaprozin or Oxaprozinum, is a non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). It is used to treat chronic pain that comes from oseteoarthritis , rheumatoid arthritis, and juvenile arthritis. Although the safety and efficacy have been established in children over the age of six, other studies have indicated that it is no more effective at treating pain than is Aspirin. Additionally, it is said to stay in the blood stream longer. However, Daypro has some serious side effects; the most significant of which are Stevens-Johnson Syndrome (SJS) and Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis (TEN).
Within one year of its release, more reports of SJS and TEN surfaced in regard to Daypro than they did for any other prescription NSAID. At least four people died as a result of SJS or TEN caused by the taking of Dapyro.
Even though Daypro is a seemingly dangerous drug with minimal efficacy, it remains on the market and is likely to continue to cause harm to unsuspecting patients.
Stevens-Johnson Syndrome and Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis are related disorders that cause the death of skin cells. Essentially, the outermost layer of the skin separates from the inner levels and proceeds to die off. People suffering from SJS or TEN have very visible effects of the diseases on their bodies. TEN is the more severe version of this disease, and it can be fatal. Please refer to our sections on Stevens-Johnson Syndrome and Toxic Epidermal Necrolyis for more information.
Daypro is also known as Dayrun or Duraprox.
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with SJS or TEN as a result of taking Daypro or any other prescription NSAID, you might be entitled to compensation. Contact one of our skilled dangerous drug lawyers today to schedule a free and confidential consultation.
