My father was on the high blood pressure drug lipator for about 2 years. About 4 months ago, he got very sick, we were told he had pancreatitis and cysts on his pancreas. He almost died, his organs started to fail and he couldn't keep any food down. He lost 70 pounds over a 3 month period, the docotors couldn't figure out what was wrong and when they looked over his medications they saw lipator. The doctors told us that even thou it does not say anything about pancreas damage on the label it does cause it, they took him off of it immediatly but it took him about 10 months to get back on his feet and be able to work again. My parents are now 25,000+ dollars in medical debt, Could they sue the makers of lipator for the medical bills? Also to make them put this warning on their labels?
