Yes. You have a lot to think about.

I am sorry that you were not sufficiently warned by the drug manufacturers of all of the possible risks in taking the drug you were prescribed. I am sorry that your health was severely compromised as a result.

Good luck with whatever decision you decide to make.
Thank you.

... Does this prevent me from writing a fictitious book about an evil pharmaceutical company called "Scabby" ?
Books have been written about evil pharmaceutical companies in the past, both fictional and nonfictional. "Scabby" could be an interesting read. :)

If you are serious about writing about your experience, you should have your manuscript personally reviewed by a publishing law professional prior to publication, to make sure you do not cross any legal lines (into, for example, defamation territory).

Again, I wish you good luck.
