She went through withdrawls and has some muscle problems and other health problems because of it. I found out that nubane was taken off the shelfs of hospitals over a year ago and my daughter is only 8 months why was she given it and why did the doctor lie to me and say it was safe for the baby when it wasent?
This question relates more to medical malpractice, not family law. I have reposted your question in the proper category.
I am sorry to hear about what you have experienced. However, Nubain wasn't exactly taken off the market. Two of the companies that used to manufacture the medication stopped producing it. One still produces the medication, but there is a serious production shortage. So, while it may not be "on the shelves" anymore, it hasn't been forced off the market. Many obstetricians still use this drug (when they can get ahold of it) as an analgesic during labor and delivery. The drug has been associated with fetal problems (bradycardia or slow fetal heartrate, for example), including the withdrawal you mentioned. That said, ACOG (the American Congress of Obstretricians and Gynecologists) recently reaffirmed its longstanding position that there is not enough evidence to ban Nubain's use in labor and delivery. I cannot really comment upon what the doctor told you, but it would be incorrect to suggest that Nubain carries no risk for a fetus or laboring mother. All such risks must be balanced against the expected benefit of the medication. If you believe that your child or girlfriend has suffered a significant injury due to the use of Nubain, you should contact an attorney to discuss your rights.
This is a medical malpractice question and you need to contact a personal injury attorney who handles medical malpractice claims. With that being said, it is impossible to say why the doctor said what he did. Your first hurdle is to prove nubane caused your daughter's health problems, it was negligent for the doctor to use it and it is financially viable to pursue the claim. This is often very difficult and costly. Good luck.
