Lyrica - criminal complaint


Recommended Posts

I submitted by General Attorney in Austria a criminal complaint with respect to Lyrica  for following points:

- it is a medicament damaging health

- on the leaflet there is missing information that it causes addiction

- side effects are downplayed

- weaning period of one week on the leaflet is life dangerous 

- the clinical studies are imo manipulated


If anyone was  damaged  by Lyrica, I would be happy if you reported it also by the authority which will investigate it. The address is:


General attorney Vienna - Staatsanwaltschaft Wien

Landesgerichtsstr. 11

1082 Vienna



If anyone would use this possibility, please kindly let me know.


It is possible also to ask for compensation if Pfizer would be declared guilty, it is only very hard to prove. However the more people would make complaint, the better chance we had.

im not sure how the system works there, but i wanted to voice my support for your efforts!  even just greater visibility and familiarity are a form of progress.

from 2005-2012, i spent 7 years taking 17 different psychotropic medications covering several classes.  i would be taking 3-7 medications at a time, and 6 out of the 17 medications listed below were maxed or overmaxed in clinical dosage before i moved on to trying the next unhelpful cocktail.
antidepressants (SSRIs, SNRIs, NDRIs, tetracyclics): zoloft, wellbutrin, effexor, lexapro, prozac, cymbalta, remeron
antipsychotics (atypical): abilify, zyprexa, risperdal, geodon
sleep aids (benzos, off-label antidepressants & antipsychotics, hypnotics): seroquel, temazepam, trazodone, ambien
anxiolytics: buspar
anticonvulsants: topamax
i tapered off all psychotropics from late 2011 through early 2013, one by one.  since quitting, ive been cycling through severe, disabling withdrawal symptoms spanning the gamut of the serious, less serious, and rather worrisome side effects of these assorted medications.  previous cross-tapering and medication or dosage changes had also caused undiagnosed withdrawal symptoms.
