In any civil action alleging damages caused by a prescription drug that has been approved by the federal Food and Drug Administration, a physician, optometrist, nurse practitioner or physician assistant may not be sued unless the plaintiff pleads specific facts which, if proven, amount to negligence on the part of the medical provider.  It is the intent of this section to immunize innocent medical providers listed in this section who are not actively negligent from forum-driven lawsuits.
