Wyeth v. Levine 1
Wyeth v. Levine
129 S. Ct. 1187 (2009)
 “Changes being effected”
- the post-marketing duty to warn
 
Vermont Supreme Court Levine v. Wyeth (2006)
 
FDA approval of a drug label [is] but a
first step in the process of warning
consumers.
When further warnings become necessary,
the manufacturer is at least partially
responsible for taking additional action
If it fails to do so, it cannot rely on the FDA's continued approval of its labels as a shield against state tort liability.
Wyeth v. Levine 2
 
Vermont Supreme Court Levine v. Wyeth (2006)
Such a duty does not create a conflict with federal requirements because the FDA and the state share the purpose of encouraging pharmaceutical companies to alter their drug labels when they are inadequate to protect consumers.
