Guess Who's Being Sued Again?

Drug: Lamictal (lamotrigine)
Marketed and manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline.

According to the Daily Mail, the lawsuit, filed by Khaliah Shaw, 26, alleges that within a month of taking the drug, she had developed a rash on her face, while the skin on her lips had started to peel off. Although she visited her local ER, she was initially diagnosed with the flu.

Two days later, it is claimed, Miss Shaw woke up in excruciating pain, with the skin on her face, neck, back and chest falling off and her mouth covered in blisters.

The reaction left her skin permanently scarred, and she is slowly losing her sight.

Shaw, along with many others, are suing GlaxoSmithKline for promoting the product without warning of the risks, claiming more than $3.45 million in medical costs.

Shaw lost up to 90 percent of her skin.
