Neurontin Side Effects Lawsuits: Linked to Suicide

Neurontin (Gabapentin) is a drug approved to treat patients with epileptic seizures. However, the drug was heavily promoted by the drug maker to treat at least 11 other conditions. In fact, it is estimated that nearly 80 percent of all Neurontin prescriptions were filled for unapproved medical conditions, so-called off label uses. According to reports, Parke-Davis used a systematic strategy to promote Neurontin for untested uses, such as chronic pain, bipolar disorder, ADD, anxiety, migraines and other conditions.

In May 2004 the drug makers parent company: Warner Lambert agreed to pay $430 million to settle civil and criminal issues related to Parke-Davis's promotion of Neurontin. Although doctors may legally prescribe drugs for various diseases, it is illegal for a company to market drugs for which there is no FDA approved use.

Unfortunately, the use of Neurontin is believed to be linked to suicidal behavior. Thus the excessive off-label use of Neurontin has resulted in many people needlessly having adverse side effects including suicide or attempted suicide.

The motive for this excessive promotion? In 2000-2001, the drug maker made nearly three billion dollars in sales of Neurontin.
