Former Pfizer Official Sues Company for Marketing Practices

A former Pfizer employee has sued the company over its marketing of Lipitor. The suit claims that Pfizer mislead doctors in its educational programs. According to the suit, the drug was prescribed unnecessarily and could have proved harmful to those patients who didn’t need the drug. The suit was sealed in order for the government to intervene. However, it has chosen not to take action which may mean the government thinks the case has no merit. However, the government has intervened in situations where pharmaceutical companies have marketed their products for off label use or advertised their drugs for uses which were not approved by the FDA. This is a case worth watching. We’ll wait and see what happens.
