At no time did Seroxat manufacturer, GlaxoSmithKline, admit liability.
**Paxil is the brand name of Seroxat in the US.
Some of the successful Paxil lawsuit settlements include a case involving violent and suicidal tendency as a side effect of using Paxil. In this case a man using Paxil killed all members of his family then shot himself to death. A lawsuit was filed against GlaxoSmithKline and a settlement of $6.4 million dollars was awarded to the family of the man. [SOURCE]
Another successful Paxil lawsuit is about a case involving child birth defects. A family of a boy born with severe heart defects whose mother used Paxil during pregnancy won a lawsuit and was compensated $2.5 million. [SOURCE]
A class action lawsuit, involving users of Paxil and manufacturers in some states selling defective tablets was also filed. Such tablets broke apart or were being absorbed too fast or irregularly into the body. Paxil lawsuit settlements totaling $28 million dollars were awarded for compensation to patients who were affected in any way by defective tablets within the timeframe that the drugs were manufactured.

According to information from the courts and people familiar with the cases, Paxil lawsuit settlements involving birth defects, suicide and other class action suits have cost GlaxoSmithKline over $1 billion. Successful birth defect Paxil lawsuit settlements have attracted compensation of between $1.5 -$ 4 million with over 600 cases remaining unsettled. Most suicide and suicidal tendency related cases have been settled with only a few remaining; compensation of about $2 million for suicide cases and $300,000 or attempted suicide. Other cases related to addiction, withdrawal symptoms and side effects attract around $50,000. - September 7, 2011 - Author: D. Jefferson
Remarkably, Seroxat is still given a clean bill of health from the UK medicines regulator, the MHRA, this despite there being at total number of 32,919 reports of 'reactions', 10,568 of which have been 'adverse reactions.' To cap it all, the MHRA still believe Seroxat to be safe and effective and also believe that the benefits of taking Seroxat outweigh the risks. They report that there have been 177 reports of fatalities whilst patients have been on Seroxat. [Fig 1]
In 2011, GlaxoSmithKline will still not help consumers suffering severe withdrawal problems from their product. [FULL STORY]
