Taking on Glaxo in the High Court – it’s 2010 at last!

This year has been a long time coming for many people. At long last, in the Autumn, patients injured by Seroxat will be slugging it out with Glaxo in the High Court in London. The issue at the heart of this particular action claims Seroxat has a propensity to cause a withdrawal reaction.

I, for one, cannot wait – the wonderful thing about taking Glaxo on in court is all the publicity that will be generated, not to mention all the previously unseen documents that will see the light of day for the first time.

Once the court proceedings start, Glaxo will have nowhere to hide from the truth.

If you’re having trouble withdrawing from Seroxat, it’s not too late to join the High Court action – but you’ve only got a week to do it, so time is very tight.

This from solicitors Hugh James:

Have you had difficulties withdrawing from the anti-depressant drug Seroxat?

Have you found it impossible to withdraw from it? Are you having difficulties in withdrawing from Seroxat now?

The High Court made a Group Litigation Order in relation to the Group Action brought by around 500 individuals alleging harm from problems withdrawing from Seroxat.

On 19 May 2009 the High Court ordered that any individual who wishes to pursue a compensation claim must join the Group Action before 15 January 2010.

All individuals must have their claim investigated before they can join the action and so they need to come forward ASAP.

Register your interest now, call the Seroxat team at Hugh James, designated as lead solicitors for the purposes of the Group Litigation Order, on 02920 785 971 or go to http://www.hughjames.com/seroxat

The Group Register will close on 15 January 2010 and any individuals who have not joined at that date may lose their opportunity to be part of the litigation.

You should not stop taking any medication without consulting your doctor .

    Katherine Fletcher, I have been on serxat for a year and a half and after 6 months of 30mg I tried to come off but after a day or two I had blinding headaches, severe dizziness and felt so ill I thought I was going to die so I went back on to them and in the last 6 months I have attempted again 2 or 3 times to come off them after reading all this horrific stuff and I still can’t get clear of them. I was told as well to sue them but I didn’t know there was a case against them. Have you found out if there is a solicitor dealing with these claims? I really think everyone who has been affected should join forces.
