THEY ‘HURT AND KILLED’ US, AS FOR MYSELF I CAN’T WALK, THATS AFTER A HEART ATTACK FROM 1200-MG A DAY OF PRESCRIBED SEROQUEL FOR CHRONIC INSOMNIA !, FIRST IT’S THE WEIGHT GAIN, OH, YOU WILL LOOSE THAT YOU ARE TOLD ITS A SIDE EFFECT, THEN FOLLOWING LIVER PROBLEMS YOUR TEETH GO BRITTLE , EDEMA CAN MY MOUTH BE ANY DRIER? ETC. NO ! IT DOESN’T STOP, WHY DO APPOINTED PEOPLE IN OUR GOVERNMENT ALLOW THIS? AstraZeneca MADE BILLIONS ON THIS DRUG ALONE!, PAID LOTSA TAX BUT WOW 10K!.. I MADE THAT IN TWO MONTHS WORK BEFORE SEROQUEL RUINED ME AND MY LIFESTYLE!

Months in ICU.over a period of 9 years. It killed his pancreas! This whole thing is just evil. I would like to know how many people who work for Astra Zenaca and that can include their family members. How many are on Seroquel? Law firms handling the cases… Are you or your loved ones on seroquel?? You know why you are not on it! It can make you very sick! It can kill you! Medicaid footed the bill. So we have all paid. Their wont be any money left.

I signed up for litigation with one lawyer, only to have my info transferred to another attorney. It has been over 1-1/2 years and I have heard nothing about my case. This is the very first I have ever seen about Astra-Zeneca agreeing to settle any amount with anyone. And yes, for the number of individuals involved, the amount suggested is absolutely criminal. I too was prescribed Seroquel for what my Doctor deemd as moodiness and sleepessness. And she upped my dosage from 20mg to 5omg after a short period of time. I noticed that as soon as I began taking it my blood sugar spiked. Two years of questioning and all she did was talk in circles. No answers. I have never had high blood sugar in my life. It doesn’t appear to run on either side of my famlilies. Once I stopped taking it ,after reading about the side effects of Seroquel, my doctor diagnosed me with Type2 diabetes. It has been an uphill battle ever since. I can get noone to respond to my calls,emails,etcSeems as though I have been swept under the rug and forgotten about. Probably until at least the time limit has expired….two years.
Not once did she ever tell me about the possiblities of Seroquel causing me to become a diabetic. Now I have to watch everything I eat and take Metformin twice a day plus prick my fingers twice daily after each meal. It flat stinks. I can’t even get re-imbursed for the meds that I now have to take…nothing. And yet Asrta-Zeneca has made billions off of this drug. Just goes to show….he who has the money, makes all the rules. Welcome to Corporate America where that almighty dollar rules everything. It is sickening. Soemone needs to be held accountable. And now. it won’t do anyone any good once they are deceased. I pray for you. David.

However, all of these lawyers are playing the same game with all the unethical deductions except for the fact that, the cases that were bundeled, those clients are told they have to pay not only 1/3 to there original council but, another 1/3 to the council they were given to at settelment which there are laws protecting consumers from this kind of thievery. Astra-Zeneca and these type of lawyers have been lying to their clients because there are lawyers who are taking Serequel cases on an individual basis depending on how severe your case is and that in the U.K. Astra-Zeneca doesn’t seam to be carrying as much buying power. I myself by the grace of God and my Family, who kept a constant vigil by my bedside in the ICU while I lay dying in a diabetic coma fighting for my life and that was after I had already had gone into cardiac arrest twice, then took a heart attack, then a stroke,went into renal failure , lost all my electolytes and needed 6 blood trasfusions but,I made it after a long battel back so, I ask anyone who reads this, I was given this medication for insomnia not FDA LABELED APPROVED, HOW MUCH IS YOUR LIFE WORTH? SAY NO TO THIER DEAL AND CALL YOUR STATE’S ATTORNEY AS WELL AS THE STATE’S ATTORNEY WHERE EVERYONE OF THESE CROOKS PRACTICE AND REPORT THEM BECAUSE MAYBE FOR ONCE THEY’LL GET THE MESSAGE THAT WE MAY BE SICK AND WE MADE BE DISABLED BUT, WE HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE GOING OUT FIGHTING FOR WHAT IS RIGHTFULLY OURS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just do not see a way that I can go any further with this lawsuit because I am in fear that I will lose my benifits. As a single disabled mother $12,000 just is not worth losing what little bit I have, which by the way might be about 5 or 6 thousand dollars. Although that money is very much needed right now. I just wish there was a way.
