False and Misleading Claims by Drug Manufacturers

Major drug manufacturers are routinely making false and misleading claims about their drugs and failing to adequately notify consumers about the risk. The FDA has issued warning letters to numerous drug makers in 2010 for claiming that their drugs are more effective and safer than the actually are. In 2010 the FDA has issued warning letters to big name pharmaceutical companies, including AstraZeneca, Novartis Pharmaceuticals, Eli Lilly & Co. and Jazz Pharmaceuticals, along with many more, for making claims in advertising and packaging materials that were false and misleading. Johnson and Johnson has recently been hit with two large jury verdicts because of misleading claims it made about Risperdal.

Consumers have a right to know how effective the drugs they are purchasing actually are and they certainly should be informed of all the risks. Brady Preston Gronlund has brought claims for failing to adequately warn consumers of risks associated with a drug against multiple product manufacturers, including Pfizer based on misrepresentations it made about the safety of Chantix.
