Zyprexa

 

Pulaski Law Firm has resolved all of its clients’ claims for injuries suffered as a result of ingestion of Zyprexa. Our firm is no longer accepting Zyprexa claims inquiries.

Eli Lilly and Co. said late Thursday, June 9, 2005 that it had entered into an agreement in principle to settle about 8,000, or 75%, of the claims against the company related to its schizophrenia medication, Zyprexa.

The agreement involves claimants who asserted they developed diabetes-related conditions from their use of Zyprexa.

Pulaski Law Firm, P.L.L.C. represents more than 1100 individuals who developed diabetes or pancreatitis while using Zyprexa. All of those cases have now been settled.

Zyprexa, used to treat schizophrenia, bi-polar, ADHD and other mental disorders, had been linked to diabetes and diabetes related complications including coma and death.

Researchers at Duke University found abnormalities in the blood sugar of patients taking Zyprexa. These findings included mild elevations in blood sugar (hyperglycemia), onset of diabetes, and diabetic ketoacidosis. Ketoacidosis associated to Zyprexa adverse effects reports had been fatal in about half of the cases.

Other studies by the Department of Veterans Affairs at Boston University and the University of Illinois at Chicago revealed similar findings. A study conducted on three antipsychotic drugs, including Zyprexa, linked the drug to an increased rate of diabetes and other serious diabetic conditions, such as diabetic coma, caused by severe insulin deficiency.

Zyprexa and the FDA

Since its approval by the FDA in 1996, Zyprexa was one of Eli Lilly’s top-selling drugs, and Zyprexa was prescribed to over 6 million people world wide. Each state has a law which limits the amount of time an injured person has to file a lawsuit after the injury. The amount of time can vary greatly for many reasons.
