Sulindac Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis Lawsuits

Sulindac is a generic drug still sold under the brand name Clinoril by Merck, Inc. This prescription anti-inflammatory medication is used to treat osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, acute painful shoulder, and acute gouty arthritis. Sulindac might cause potentially deadly skin side effects.

A member of the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) class, scientists believe sulindac works by inhibiting the enzyme “cyclooxygenase-2” (COX-2), which helps create the lipid (fat cell) “prostaglandin.” This lipid regulates pain sensation in people’s bodies. By reducing its presence, people feel less pain from various symptoms.

Sulindac Might Cause Deadly Skin Side Effects

The FDA believes sulindac causes the following side effect:

  • Toxic epidermal necrosis.
