Ordinarily, the original manufacturer of the Innovator drug would not be held accountable for damages or injuries caused by a product that they did not manufacture. However, in this case, it was determined that the warning label was at fault rather than the drug itself.
The warning label for the original drug is used for both the original and the generic drug, per the Federal Drug Administration regulations. Since the warning label, which was created by the original manufacturer, did not adequately warn that the drug bore an increased risk of suicide in adults, the innovator drug was held liable.
