AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, updated the website recently and they are now actively providing expert opinion in view of the recent news on Paxil Lawsuit.

On July 26, the Office of the Attorney General, State of Louisiana announced that GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) will pay $45 million to settle Louisiana lawsuits on Medicaid fraud and deceptive marketing allegations related to Paxil and other medications. Paxil, produced by GlaxoSmithKline and approved in 1992 by the FDA, is an antidepressant drug belonging to a group called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs).

On June 26, a new lawsuit was filed by a mother and her daughter in Pennsylvania Eastern District Court (case no. 2:2013cv03696), alleging that the daughter suffered birth defects from her mother's ingestion of Paxil during pregnancy. In the lawsuit, the plaintiffs claim that the daughter had a critical neural tube defect that required surgery.

Taking into consideration the latest developments, AttorneyOne.com updated the website and, now, can actively provide an expert opinion including how to get in contact with legal counsel easily and inexpensively in case of alleged Paxil serious complications. Sean Burke, director of Media Relations at AttorneyOne.com, adds that the relevant information illustrates that people continue to file Paxil lawsuits. "For that reason," he continues, "our focus should squarely fall on getting the word out and assisting people in finding the right legal assistance.”

A new study published* online on June 12, in the Australian and New Zealand Journal of Psychiatry, reveals that paroxetine (Paxil) is linked to birth defects and more specifically, to increased risk of cardiac malformations. According to this study “fluoxetine and paroxetine should be avoided in the first trimester and among those at risk of an unplanned pregnancy.”

AttorneyOne.com has further information on Paxil lawsuits including how to get in contact with legal counsel.
