If you paid for Paxil®, or a generic
paroxetine, you could get a payment from
a $65 million class action settlement.
- The settlement has been approved in the class action lawsuit against GlaxoSmithKline on behalf of consumers, insurers and Employee Welfare Benefit Plans, including some governments, (“third party payors”) who paid for the prescription drug, Paxil® or its generic equivalent, paroxetine.
- Pursuant to the court’s October 20, 2006 order, settlement checks have been mailed to eligible consumer class members. Eligible consumer class members are entitled to receive a “pro rata” share of the settlement fund set aside for consumers. As provided for in the settlement between the parties — which was approved by the court — your check represents your proportionate share of this fund for overcharges based on the eligible proof of claim you submitted.
- If your claim was found to be incomplete or ineligible, you should have already received a letter by this time notifying you of this determination.
Please be aware that the deadlines to file a claim, objection or exclusion as noted in the notices at this site have all passed.
