Merck Executive Testifies About Battle Over Vioxx Warning

As reported in an article at, a Merck executive testified today at the New Jersey Vioxx trial that Merck battled the FDA to determine whether a cardiac risk warning should be prominently placed or hidden in the fine print of the Vioxx packaging. The executive testified that Merck projected a $500 million drop in sales of Vioxx if the warning had to be prominent. Merck won the battle, and the warning was buried in the “precautions” section of the Vioxx literature.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
