Keep talking to attorneys . . . there is one out
there who'll help. Med Mal lawsuits are quite
expensive . . . so just keep looking. Have you
filed a complaint with your state? Tell your
story to the news (tv, radio, newspapers,
underground publications, etc.). MAKE
NOISE. It looks like you would have a
FEDERAL LAWSUIT against the Drug
Company, Doctors, and Hospital involved.
Suing the drug companies is not easy.
Hang in there . . .Good Luck!

Benzodiazipines are very widely prescribed and generally very safe drugs. Compazine and Ativan have been approved by the FDA and have been used for decades. With any drug, there is a small fraction of the population that is ultra sensitive and prone to serious side effects. You are one of those people, unfortunately, when it comes to this class of drugs. If an FDA approved drug is used for its intended purpose and within recommendations and causes a side effect, there is little if any chance of the victim recovering damages. I am sure this seems very unfair to you, but that's how the system is set up. Unless it can be shown that the approval for the drugs was obtained fraudulently, or the doctor misused the drug, the patient can't recover damages.
