This verdict against GSK / Paxil was just overturned by the Supreme Court because it was a generic version.  Who IS responsible for generics, especially when they are manadated by insurers?

The article doesn't say if the Court of Appeals kicked it back to the State court, which is what usually happens.  Although then, the attorney would then have to decide if it was worth it to continue.  I think this is issue is going to continue to be litigated.  It is hopeful that both Massachusetts and California ruled that Brand named manufacturers can be sued by generic drug users. 
 

Thank you for the link, Barbarannamated. 

take care,

The manufacturer of the generic version? A generic still has a "brand" as such, it is just not the same one.

It's complicated.  From what I understand, both GSK and Mylan agree that the paroxetine is likely the cause. However, the labeling by GSK, and used by generic manufacturers, only includes warnings for 18 and under.

I find it baffling that the wording on the bottle can exonerate them from responsibility, especially if it seems that they're accepting that the drug is the likely cause.
