GlaxoSmithKline Quietly Settling Paxil Birth Defect Cases
...but they still don't acknowledge they did anything wrong.
Drugmaker GlaxoSmithKline has agreed to settle almost 200 cases in which plaintiffs allege the use of the antidepressant Paxil caused birth defects.
Despite settling many of the Paxil cases, GSK continues to argue it acted appropriately regarding the drug.
"GSK believes it acted properly and responsibly in conducting its clinical trial program for Paxil, in marketing the medicine, in monitoring its safety once it was approved for use and in updating pregnancy information in the medicine's label as new information became available," Alspach said.
