British Neurologist’s Neurontin Warnings Ignored

A British neurologist has testified under oath that he had warned Neurontin’s manufacturer, Pfizer, of its potential link to aggresion and depression. The testimony has been taken in order for the court to determine if Neurontin lawsuits will be allowed to continue. Plaintiffs have alleged that more than 100 suicides are linked to the drug Neurontin.
According to a Wall St. Journal report, “Dr. Trimble said that in 1995 and 1996, he was hired to write two confidential reports for Parke-Davis — now a unit of Pfizer — because the company “was concerned about psychosis in relation to their drug.” Dr. Trimble said he was unable to find a link to psychosis, but noted effects of depression and aggression.”
