Yes, I filled out the form at www.effexorwar.com, but I have not yet received any information from the law firm. My concern is not that I am "compensated" but that patients need to be better educated about the serious side-effects of the medication and the withdrawal. My opinion, based on my recent experiences and research, is that the company downplays the seriousness of the side-effects to physicians, patients, and investors. The effect is that more and more people get prescribed this medication, and many are harmed. My opinion is that patients are unwittingly being used as guinea pigs. The proper procedure would have been for Wyeth to spend more time doing adequate research before putting this drug on the market and to fully inform drug reps who could then fully inform physicians.
