Serzone Liver Damage Lawsuits
Serzone (Nefazodone), is a popular antidepressant medication that has been linked to liver damage and failure.
On January 9, 2002, Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. the company that makes Serzone warned doctors and health care providers that "cases of life-threatening hepatic failure have been reported in patients treated with Serzone." It continued that many people have and will suffer liver failure associated with Serzone dosage, "about 3-4 times the estimated background of liver failure."
The FDA required the company as of December 2001, to include a warning on labels of the a drug Serzone informing patients that potentially life-threatening liver damage, and an unusually high rate of liver failure can occur when using the drug. There have been many reported cases of liver failure leading to transplant and death.
