Hello again, Heather, and thank you very much for clarifying the situation for me.
There would normally not be grounds to pursue legal action against the manufacturer under these circumstances, but there certainly may be against the prescribing doctor since the prescription has that black box warning and is not approved at the levels you were prescribed. Knowing your liver was being damaged and continuing to prescribe the medication seems completely absurd unless the doctor reasonably believed that your liver was being damaged by something else.
It is smart to be requesting your medical records since that is what a medical professional will need to review in order to make a determination as to whether malpractice occurred in this case or not. That opinion is typically necessary before legal action may be initiated against the doctor.
I would contact a local medical malpractice law firm as they usually have connections with medical providers to perform such a review at no cost to you, the patient, and they should not charge you a fee unless they prevail on your behalf.
With the myriad of complaints you had while on the drug, along with your apparently high liver enzyme results and prescribing outside of the limits permitted by the FDA, it certainly does sound as though you have grounds to pursue a lawsuit against the doctor, but you need that opinion by a medical professional first in order to take action for damages you have sustained as a result of the doctor's conduct.
I hope this helps clarify the situation for you. Please remember to rate my service once you have all the information you need so I will be compensated for my time from the deposit you posted with this website. If you have any other questions, please ask me – I’ll be happy to respond. Thank you!
