In my local paper today there is an article regarding Eli Lilly and how they have taken liberties with claims on a drug that they manufacture. Although people are always looking for miracle drugs they have to remember THERE ARE NONE! This is a link to an article and how many billions tof dollars they have to pay. This is not the first time that a pharmacuital company has misrepresented their product, read the article and form your own opinion.

Eli Lilly has also some type of "relationship" with Coventry of Kansas Insurance so that their insulins are at a lower copay than insulins from other manufacturers

Ironically enough that medication caused my type 1.5 diabetes and I sued them and won. About time they had to pay out more than just lawsuit money. And my lawsuit has been settled and i have seen the money from it.

Prices of drugs will rise regardless of settled lawsuits.

It has also come out in office memos that Eli Lilly did this to boost insulin sales.
