Updated on January 6, 2011

Serzone Class Action Lawsuit

Many lawsuits have been filed against Bristol-Myers Squibb Company who is the manufacturer of the antidepressant medication Serzone. This anti-depressant drug was introduced in the mid-1990's and is linked to cases of liver failure and other serious conditions. It has been alleged that patients taking this prescription antidepressant was unaware of the potential side effects that could occur.

Serzone is generically known as nefazodone and its use is for the treatment of symptoms related to depression and other conditions as determined by a doctor. It is thought to work by correcting imbalances of certain chemicals in the brain such as norepinephrine and serotonin. In rare cases, using Serzone has been linked to liver problems that have resulted liver transplant or death. In 2004, Bristol-Myers took this prescription medicine off of the market, citing for 'business reasons', blaming a decline of sales instead of concerns of risk of liver failure.
