Overview

Zecuity is a patch that delivers sumatriptan. It is a battery-powered device that uses a small electrical current to deliver the medication through the skin. It is worn around the upper arm for up to four hours.

FDA Safety Warning for Zecuity

In June 2016, the FDA issued a Safety Communication regarding a “large number” of adverse events involving Zecuity.

Skin Reactions from Zecuity

  • Severe burns
  • Permanent scarring
  • Redness
  • Pain
  • Skin discoloration
  • Blisters
  • Cracked skin

Zecuity Skin Problems are Common

In clinical trials, 25% of patients experienced pain and more than half complained about redness under the patch. The most common side effects are mild pain, tingling, itching, warmth, discomfort, and a change in skin color under the patch. It is also normal to experience mild tingling in the first 30 seconds due to the electrical current.

Recommendation for Patients

  • Never use Zecuity when bathing, showering, or swimming
  • Stop using Zecuity immediately if you experience moderate or severe pain
  • Tell your healthcare provider if you have any side effect that bothers you or does not go away

What is the problem?

The Schmidt Firm, PLLC is nationally recognized as a class action law firm, but our lawyers are not filing a Zecuity class action. Instead, we are filing individual lawsuits against Teva Pharmaceuticals on behalf of people who developed severe burns, scars, or permanent injuries.

About Class Actions

Class actions are the most efficient way for large groups of people to seek compensation for very similar legal claims. Everyone joins together and collectively seeks compensation. They share the payout after lawyers take a percentage.

Why Our Law Firm is Filing Individual Lawsuits as Opposed to a Class Action

The problem with class actions is that they are not designed to maximize compensation for plaintiffs with severe injuries. Members may also have to accept massive lawyers’ fees or a “low-ball” settlement.

Our lawyers are filing individual lawsuits so we can focus our efforts on helping people with the most serious injuries. We believe there is no excuse for pharmaceutical companies who profit off defective, dangerous products, or fail to warn about side effects.
