Why File a Zyprexa Lawsuit

Why File a Zyprexa Lawsuit

Whenever your health is aversely affected by a medication (especially in regards to a lack of information or warning about potentially harmful or deadly side effects), you have the right to protect yourself – and to be compensated for the detrimental consequences to your health. This is especially true for Zyprexa users who have developed diabetes, pancreatitis, hyperglycemia, or death from a diabetes-induced heart attack.

The warning signs for Zyprexa use have been surfacing since at least 2000, but Lilly didn't begin to acknowledge the problems until much later and only after the Federal Drug Administration intervened. In fact, the FDA finally ordered Eli Lilly to change the label, warning patients of dire complications as a result of hundreds of adverse reactions and reported complaints of hyperglycemia, diabetes, ketoacidosis, pancreatitis, and other related conditions in September of 2003.

Tragically, there have been 288 diabetes cases reported in Zyprexa patients, with 23 of them resulting in fatalities. While the company has acknowledged the dangerous life-threatening side effects associated with Zyprexa use, consumer advocates point out that the Zyprexa side effect warnings referencing diabetes, heart attack, coma, and hyperglycemia, continue to this day to be hidden deep within the drug's adverse reactions label.

Don't let huge pharmaceutical companies get away with insensitivity towards consumer safety. Only extensive litigation will force the industry to be more vigilant in researching potentially harmful side effects and in warning consumers about these risks in a timely – perhaps life-saving-manner.
