Another State Files Suit Against Lilly

- May 18, 2007

Utah’s Attorney General filed a Zyprexa lawsuit against Eli Lilly and Co. yesterday, making Utah the latest state to join the battle against the drug giant.

The lawsuit, filed by Attorney General Mark Shurtleff, accuses Lilly of promoting Zyprexa for a number of “off-label” (non-FDA approved) uses including treatment of Alzheimer’s, Tourette’s syndrome and anorexia.

Pharmaceutical companies are prevented from marketing drugs for uses not approved by the FDA, although doctors are free to prescribe drugs for non-FDA approved uses if they deem it appropriate.

The state is seeking damages for Zyprexa prescriptions it subsidized through Medicaid.

According to the complaint, Lilly profited at the state’s expense by pushing doctors to prescribe Zyprexa for medically inappropriate and/or unnecessary purposes. The complaint states that Utah paid out “millions of dollars” for needless prescriptions and, as a result, Lilly was “illegally enriched.”

Lilly is currently facing lawsuits filed by seven other state attorney generals, including: Pennsylvania, Montana, Louisiana, West Virginia, Alaska, New Mexico and Mississippi.

Zyprexa Side Effects Reports
Zyprexa and diabetes link
  Whether or not Zyprexa and similar atypical antipsychotic drugs are linked to diabetes is a question that will be answered in the Zyprexa lawsuits that have been filed. Patients have reported deadly instances of Zyprexa side effects. There are 288 reported cases of Zyprexa diabetes cases, including 23 deaths. Zyprexa maker Eli Lilly has enjoyed large success with Zyprexa, with the drug currently the world’s top selling schizophrenia medication. The Zyprexa side effects causing Zyprexa lawsuits may begin slowing the company’s current financial success. For more information on Zyprexa side effects contact us.
