Zoloft Side Effects Blamed for Girl's Murder

Lisa Anderson's daughter was shot to death by the girl's boyfriend, Zachary Schmidkunz, in 2003. Schmidkunz blamed his actions on his use of Zoloft. Now Anderson has filed a wrongful death suit against Schmidkunz, his parents, and Pfizer, Inc - the makers of Zoloft.

Lisa Anderson's lawsuit alleges Zachary Schmidkunz's parents, Rhonda and Gail Schmidkunz, should have known about his depression and suicidal thoughts and kept him away from a shotgun. It also claims Pfizer Inc., the maker of the antidepressant drug Zoloft, knew of but failed to warn that Zoloft's side effects could lead to uncontrollable rage in young patients. (AP)
