This is a question that is very difficult to answer without having more specific information. However if you believe there was a connection what you should do is contact a local attorney who handles medical malpractice actions. The good news is that the initial consultation in these cases should be free.

You need to provide the attorney with all the information and than together you will decide whether to proceed. You also should do some research on the specific drug, any known side effects warnings etc. As prepared as you are will help make the meeting run that much smoother

Good luck
