Nuplazid Lawsuits

Nuplazid is an antipsychotic drug used to treat hallucinations and delusions associated with psychosis in patients with Parkinson’s disease. Almost half of patients with Parkinson’s disease report experiencing psychotic symptoms that may lead to significantly impaired cognition and emotions and an inability to provide self-care. Nuplazid was shown to diminish these symptoms without exacerbating the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. Shortly after the drug was released, users reported adverse symptoms including falls, insomnia, nausea, fatigue and even death. An analysis by a nonprofit health care organization and subsequent data released by the FDA suggest that the drug was suspected in the deaths of hundreds of patients.

What is Nuplazid?

Nuplazid (pimavanserin) is used to reduce psychological symptoms experienced by some patients with Parkinson’s disease, a neurological disorder that typically affects individuals over 60 years old. Some of the effects of Parkinson’s disease include depression, emotional disturbances, hallucinations and delusions. The FDA approved Nuplazid in April 2016 to alleviate the frequency and severity of hallucinations and delusions in these patients. As the first drug available to address these symptoms, Nuplazid was granted breakthrough therapy designation and priority review, which expedites the development and review of drugs that offer substantial improvements over available regimens for the treatment of severe medical conditions.

What is Happening with Nuplazid?

According to the FDA, a total of 700 patients have died while taking Nuplazid. In addition, many patients who took Nuplazid did not experience any alleviation of their symptoms. A report from the non-profit organization, the Institute for Safe Medication Practices, reported that 244 patients taking Nuplazid died between 2016 and 2017. These deaths, along with the deaths reported by the FDA, were listed as “adverse events” associated with the drug. This means that Nuplazid is presumed to be a factor in the deaths of these patients.

Medical experts have voiced concern that the drug approval process for Nuplazid was hasty, thereby failing to produce sufficient evidence of the drug’s safety and efficacy. Concerns about the drug’s safety have led doctors to warn patients of its side effects and express caution about its use for other diseases, such as dementia. Nevertheless, the FDA has not currently identified a safety concern that is not addressed by the product’s labeling. Nuplazid contains a stringent “black box” warning that is mandatory for antipsychotic medications.
