Federal prosecutors take over three Depakote whistleblower cases

Three whistleblower lawsuits against the maker of Depakote are now being taken over by federal prosecutors.

Depakote is an anti-seizure medication, that is prescribed to people with epilepsy, bipolar disorder and depression. The lawsuits claim that the drug maker, Abbott laboratories, illegally promoted the medication.

The U.S. Department of Justice is now intervening in these three lawsuits claiming that Abbott told doctors that they could use Depakote to treat Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. According to the claims, the drug is not an approved treatment of either of these conditions.

Abbott Laboratories are also in the middle of legal issues with woman who have claimed that the were prescribed the medication while pregnant which cause birth defects in their child.
