Pfizer Turned NAMI Into "Trojan Horse" to Push Geodon Off-Label to Kids, Suit Claims - CBS News

Pfizer funded the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill in order to turn the nonprofit into a "Trojan Horse" that would promote the antipsychotic drug Geodon for off-label use in children, according to a former pharmaceutical sales rep. Mark R. Westlock of Fenton, Mo., was a rep for Pfizer from 1991 to 2007, when he claims he was forced to resign. His whistleblower suit against Pfizer was included in the $2.3 billion Bextra settlement.
