Dolin v GSK Paxil Trial Transcripts

GSK Paxil Trial Transcripts

Justice has been served! $3 Million jury verdict against GSK in landmark generic Paxil suicide case

Plaintiff Wendy B. Dolin filed a lawsuit against GSK in Circuit Court of Cook County alleging GSK failed to adequately warn her husband’s doctor about generic Paxil/paroxetine’s association with an increased risk of suicidal behavior in adults of all ages. The Court previously ruled that, although GSK did not manufacture the pills Stewart Dolin ingested, the company was responsible for the label and knew or should have known any failure to warn would result in harm to those taking generic versions of the drug.
