If you were injured due to Neurontin or any other dangerous drug, it’s crucial to consult with an experienced dangerous drug attorney.
Questionable Marketing of Neurontin
Marketed by Pfizer Inc., Neurontin (gabapentin) is used to treat partial seizures, or epilepsy, in adults and children.
A jury in March 2010 found that Pfizer violated U.S. racketeering law in the marketing of Neurontin and was ordered to pay $142.1 million in damages, a jury decided.
Patients who have used Neurontin for non-FDA approved use have been found to be at an elevated risk for serious side effects, including suicidal tendencies. The numbers of patients who have used Neurontin for treatment of a non-FDA approved use are estimated at 40% of all prescriptions. Neurontin remains on the market for its FDA approved purposes.
