Information for Children and Young Adults With Seroquel-Related Diabetes
The use of antipsychotic drugs like Seroquel (quetiapine fumarate) have been found to cause very harmful side effects, including sudden onset diabetes. In some cases, the side-effects can have very serious and potentially fatal outcomes. The questionnaire on this page can assist parents in determining whether their child's condition qualifies them for a potential Seroquel lawsuit.
Please note: While Weitz & Luxenberg is providing information about Seroquel and a number of physical and mental health-related side effects that may have been linked to the use of Seroquel, the firm is only considering cases in which a child, teen or adult under the age of 25 was prescribed Seroquel and developed diabetes or other life-threatening condition.
Seroquel is marketed by AstraZeneca as a treatment for schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, anxiety and sleep disorders. Seroquel, a drug approved to treat schizophrenia and other disorders, is a second-generation antipsychotic drug. This group of drugs has been linked to a number of side effects not found in typical or first-generation antipsychotics.
Children and Teens at Risk
Weitz & Luxenberg is investigating cases involving children, adolescents and young adults aged 25 and younger who took Seroquel and then developed Type 2 diabetes. AstraZeneca may be responsible for their diabetic illness.
Thousands of children are being prescribed this powerful brain-affecting medication. Questions have arisen regarding whether parents have been appropriately warned about the risk their children may develop diabetes.
The firm believes AstraZeneca has been illegally promoting Seroquel for use in children and that AstraZeneca still fails to properly warn of the diabetes risk.
Weitz & Luxenberg intends to pursue AstraZeneca on behalf of any child or young adult who has been diagnosed with diabetes by what the firm believes is AstraZeneca's reckless disregard for the health and safety of these children.
