Nuplazid Drug Injury Lawyers
Nuplazid (pimavanserin) is used to help manage symptoms of psychosis, such as hallucinations, in patients suffering from Parkinson’s disease. However, the antipsychotic drug’s clinical trial resulted in alarming side effects—including death. Despite some medical professionals’ concerns about the safety and effectiveness of the drug, Nuplazid was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2016. Since then, reports of patient death have continued to rise.
The drug injury attorneys at Ferrer, Poirot & Wansbrough are here to help you if you lost a loved one who took Nuplazid to treat Parkinson’s disease-related hallucinations. We believe in holding drug companies and manufacturers accountable when their products harm innocent people, and we want to help you and your family get the compensation you deserve. Contact us today—just call (800) 210-8503, or fill out our free consultation form now.
Increase in Nuplazid-Related Deaths
Nuplazid was granted “breakthrough therapy” status by the FDA while Acadia Pharmaceuticals developed the drug, meaning that patients taking the drug displayed more significant improvements than on any other drug of its kind. This status also allowed for an expedited review process for the drug, resulting in its release with only limited scientific data to prove its safety or effectiveness.
Since 2016, more than 700 Nuplazid-related deaths have been reported. In addition to a startling number of deaths linked to Nuplazid, other patients taking the drug experienced either a decline in health or no improvement at all.
Our lawyers know that when a loved one is suffering, you’ll do anything you can to help them get the treatment and relief they need. Unfortunately for Parkinson’s patients and their families, Nuplazid may lead to potentially fatal side effects. Ferrer, Poirot & Wansbrough is now investigating Nuplazid deaths, and we want to help—contact our lawyers to get started.
