Where is the $1.42 billion Eli Lily Zyprexa settlement going as many victim claimants haven’t been paid yet? It’s the largest pharma-fraud-whistleblower case in US history.
Eli Lilly, the Indy-based pharmaceutical company pleads guilty to promoting Zyprexa for unapproved uses and is slapped with $1.4 billion criminal fine, the largest ever placed on a U.S. company.
Eli Lilly promotes sales of their #1 drug (Zyprexa $4.8 billion per year) that can *cause* diabetes and then turns around and makes billions selling more drugs to treat the diabetes. Eli Lilly’s #1 cash cow Zyprexa has been over-prescribed and linked to a 10-times greater risk of causing type #2 diabetes and increased risk of heart attack.

I believe that I am the world’s most vigorous Zyprexa claimant having posted more than 68,000 web pages.
It ain’t over. I will be costing Lilly lots more $$$. They have three certified letters from me substantiating my claim. I am a classic case for compensation having taken the stuff for four years (for off-label PTSD). I paid thousands of dollars out of my own pocket in co-payments for the Zyprexa which gave me sudden onset diabetes in 2000 with a deadly A1C of 14.2 all documented at my site.
Eli Lilly has up to 250 lawyers just on their payroll in Indy; they have NEVER contacted me except in 2005 to get a release of my medical records. My doctor says, (get this) they never contacted him to verify the information.
There must be millions out there harmed by this drug.
