FDA BLOWS ZYPREXA WHISTLE2007-02-15 05:16:18dhaszard

Eli Lilly drug company is being sued by AG's in 7 states for fraud over marketing of their Zyprexa drug. The zyprexa saga just keeps getting deeper. It was Lilly that is alleged to have indulged in the excesses of it's 'viva zyprexa' extravaganza.Zyprexa off label promotion scandal is all over the news now. Eli Lilly zyprexa cost me over $250.00 a month supply out of my own pocket X 4 years and has up to ten times the risk (over non users) of causing diabetes and severe weight gain. Zyprexa which is only FDA approved for schizophrenia (.5-1% of pop) and some bipolar (2% pop) and then an even smaller percentage of theses two groups. So how does Zyprexa get to be the 7th largest drug sale in the world? Eli Lilly is in deep trouble for using their drug reps to 'encourage' doctors to write zyprexa for non-FDA approved 'off label' uses. The drug causes increased diabetes risk,and medicare picks up all the expensive fallout.There are now 7 states (and counting) going after Lilly for fraud and restitution. Only 9 percent of adult Americans think the pharmaceutical industry can be trusted right around the same rating as big tobacco. It's good to see the FDA stepping in.
