Keller Rohrback L.L.P., Keller Rohrback P.L.C., Pogust Braslow Millrood LLC and Deskin Law Firm, a PLC filed a class action lawsuit today against Eli Lilly and Company (“Lilly”) (NYSE:LLY). Lilly, an Indiana based pharmaceutical company, is the maker of Cymbalta. The class action complaint was filed in the United States District Court for the Central District of California, in Los Angeles, on behalf of all consumers who purchased Cymbalta at any time since the product’s launch in August 2004 to the present.
Cymbalta is prescribed to individuals that have been diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder, fibromyalgia, and musculoskeletal pain. Plaintiff alleges that Lilly misrepresented the risks associated with taking Cymbalta and misled consumers about the frequency, severity, and duration of “Cymbalta withdrawal.” Withdrawal symptoms include, among others, headaches, dizziness, nausea, fatigue, nightmares, insomnia, anxiety, and suicidal ideation. Cymbalta withdrawal symptoms can range from mild to severe—the latter consisting of debilitating and painful symptoms that last several months.
