Did Abbott Labs Conceal health hazards associated with the drug Lupron?
According to the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Lupron has potential safety issues; but Abbott Labs has not included a warning label concerning long-term health problems for those who regularly take the drug. A lawsuit has accused Abbott Labs of not doing the proper testing of the drug before asking the FDA to approve Lupron.
If you, or a loved one, have been taking Lupron and are now suffered from severe side effects caused by this hormone treatment, you might qualify to file a lawsuit.
