Paxil Ineffective for Children Under 18 – Class Action Lawsuit

Meshbesher & Spence attorney Anthony Nemo led a class action lawsuit against GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), the manufacturer of the anti-depressant Paxil, claiming that Paxil was not effective at treating depression in children under the age of 18 and that GSK had deliberately tried to conceal this information. Meshbesher & Spence sought reimbursement for the families that had been prescribed and paid for Paxil, though it was not proven to be effective for children under the age of 18. A federal judge approved a $40,000,000 settlement to be paid to these families.
