I'm not surprised that no one wants to research your case at the drug company. Especially since you appear to be prescibed the drug outside of its prescribing guidelines.
However, I would talk to your psychiatrist about publishing a case report about it.
I've seen this happen where a single case report about a single event was published - other physicians read the report and say "you know, I have a patient who reports the same thing" and so on. It's something to think about.
Also, just because you might not be able to get legal relief, I would not give up on the lawyers just yet.
Search for class action suits, or approach another lawyer about a class action. Again, YOU may not get relief, BUT it may put you in contact with others that share the same experience.
Sorry you're going through all this.
Are you on any meds for the agitation?
