Suboxone Lawsuit

Suboxone is a prescription medication used in the treatment of opioid dependence and addiction. While Suboxone can be effective in helping individuals manage withdrawal symptoms and cravings, improper use or overuse of the medication can lead to adverse effects or complications. 

However, there have also been allegations that the use of Suboxone can lead to major dental problems such as tooth decay, oral infections, cavities, and tooth loss. A number of lawsuits claim that drugmakers did not adequately convey that risk to prescribing doctors or patients.

Individuals affected by Suboxone-related issues may be eligible for compensation for their injuries or damages. If you or a loved one took this medication and suffered complications, please contact Phillips Law Group to discuss the situation without delay.
