Some good news on the psych drug fraud front: the manufacturer of Zyprexa, Eli Lilly, has been slapped on the wrist with a fine in the amount of 1.4 Billion dollars. Here’s a good Fox video about this win for those who have been trying to rein in the psychiatric drug fraud.
Considering the amount of money made by Eli Lilly from Zyprexa, this huge fine is, in reality, no more than a slap on the wrist. But there are other provisions which require them to mend their ways or they will face even more fines and criminal charges.
People are dying while using this drug. The drug makes kids obese and causes diabetes. Those at Eli Lilly responsible for creating and promoting it ought to be put in jail and forced to take the “five at five” as their promo says, 5 mg at 5PM of Zyprexa is the equivalent of a chemical straightjacket.
