    I thought they'd already paid a huge out of court settlement on this one. Neurontin does a good job for alot of people for chronic pain, but it doesn't do squat for biplar.

    Of course, Seroquel and Abilify are now being heavily marketed to the public as the latest and greatest treatment for depressiosn.

    Shocking. :rolleyes:

    They paid a large (billions of dollars) fine for marketing Neurontin for uses that it wasn't FDA approved for. Those charges were brought by a state AG's office.

    This is a lawsuit separate from that and doesn't have to do with how they marketed the drug, but with fudged studies.
