Lyrica (pregabalin), an anti-epileptic drug used to control seizures and to treat fibromyalgia, has become the focus of false marketing and birth defect lawsuits over the past few years.
Lyrica has been linked to an increased chance of developing birth defects — especially if taken during the first trimester.
Lyrica is Pfizer’s top selling drug, generating more than $5 billion in annual sales, and it is currently approved for use in over 130 countries.
Last year Pfizer agreed to pay $400 million to settle a shareholder lawsuit over allegations it illegally marketed Lyrica and several other drugs off-label. The lawsuit stemmed from a $2.3 billion settlement with the federal government in 2009 for fraudulent marketing and illegal kickbacks paid to doctors who prescribed Lyrica and other Pfizer products.
If you believe Lyrica is responsible for complications you or your loved one has suffered, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit and recover compensation.
According to a study published in May 2016 by Neurology, pregabalin should “only be prescribed in women of childbearing age on a valid indication and after thorough risk-benefit analysis.”
In patients exposed to pregabalin during pregnancy, enhanced fetal monitoring may be warranted, according to the study. It was also stated that women who used Lyrica during pregnancy were three times more likely to give birth to babies with congenital defects.
Women who took the controversial drug were reportedly six times more likely to have a pregnancy that resulted in a major nervous system defect.
