Eli Lilly (LLY) urged doctors to prescribe antipsychotic drug Zyprexa for elderly patients with dementia, despite evidence the drug didn’t work for such patients, and 'ghostwrote' medical articles to market the drug. Lilly now faces lawsuits from insurers, pension funds and 12 states over its marketing practices.
