A Decatur, Tennessee woman has filed a lawsuit in the Supreme Court of the State of New York, County of New York against Bristol-Myers Squibb Company, Sanofi-Aventis U.S., LLC, Sanofi-Synthelabo, Inc., and Sanofi US Services Inc., alleging that the blood thinner Plavix caused her to suffer three separate gastrointestinal bleeds.

The plaintiff, represented by the national law firm of Parker Waichman LLP, said in the suit that she started taking Plavix in April 2011, and then suffered three gastrointestinal hemorrhages. According to the lawsuit, the defendants made misleading statements regarding the safety of the drug, and it accuses the manufacturers of unethical business practices regarding the marketing of the drug, including marketing in direct defiance of the FDA.

The suit accuses the defendants of touting the drug as “super-aspirin” in order to protect their financial interests, however, the lawsuit cites numerous research studies that suggest that aspirin is equally, if not more beneficial than Plavix, in some patients.

The lawsuit says that the plaintiff suffered severe and permanent injury, physical disfigurement and impairment, physical pain, mental pain and loss of enjoyment of life. The lawsuit also says that the plaintiff has incurred past, present, and future medical expenses because of her injuries.
