Attorney Michael Rainboth of Coughlin Rainboth Murphy & Lown has filed one of the first lawsuits in the country against Insys Therapeutics, Inc.
If you or someone you know has been prescribed the powerful narcotic Subsys, also known as oral Fentanyl spray, call us now at 603-431-1993.
Subsys is a medication that is 100 times more potent than morphine. It is a fentanyl-based opioid mouth spray intended to treat cancer patients suffering intense episodes of breakthrough cancer pain. Subsys should not be prescribed to patients who do not have cancer, however, many doctors have been found to be prescribing it to patients off-label, who do not have cancer.
Insys Therapeutics, Inc., the drug’s manufacturer, is currently being investigated by the FBI and the Department of Justice for allegations that it bribed doctors to unnecessarily prescribe Subsys to patients who did not have cancer.
On December 8, 2016 the Department of Justice arrested six of Insys’ top former corporate executives, including Insys’ former CEO and President on charges and allegations that they led a nationwide conspiracy to bribe doctors to unnecessarily prescribe Subsys off-label to patients who did not have cancer.
