Unsafe Drugs :: Miraprex

MIRAPREX - The prescription drug Miraprex, which is distributed by both Boehringer-Ingelheim and Pfizer, was at the time one of the best-selling products on the market aimed at controlling the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease as well as Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS). However, as a result of two separate studies conducted, one in 2003 and another in 2005, it has been found that the use of Miraprex may cause certain compulsive tendencies to manifest in the patient, including compulsive gambling, eating, uncontrollable sleepiness (including the potential to fall asleep while driving), and even compulsive shopping.

In 2003, the Muhammad Ali Parkinson Research Center at Barrow Neurological Institute of Arizona found that 1.5% of patients taking Miraprex developed such compulsive behaviors – a percentage that wasn’t seen in patients taking similar medication for Parkinson’s disease. In 2005, these results were confirmed by the Mayo Clinic with their very own independent study.

And, of course, the United States court system cannot overlook these studies; take for example the $8.2 million verdict in 2008 against both Boehringer-Ingelheim and Pfizer. This lawsuit was won by a Minnesota resident even though he admitted to his contributing role in the compulsive gambling addiction caused by Miraprex, and despite the fact that his total gambling losses didn’t even exceed $300,000. Because proper warning was not given beforehand concerning these side effects, this man was able to recover a sizeable legal reward with the help of a professional and experienced attorney.

If you have been harmed by taking the drug Miraprex in order to help control your RLS or Parkinson’s Disease, or you know somebody else that has, it is important that you choose an attorney carefully. Legal cases such as this can be quite complex and very costly for the plaintiff's attorney to litigate. An experienced and knowledgeable attorney will help you get the results you deserve. Please fill out the form below for a free evaluation of your case by a qualified law firm that specializes in handling Miraprex lawsuits.
