The estates of a couple killed in a murder-suicide two years ago have filed suit against Pfizer Inc., saying the drug company’s stop-smoking medicine Chantix caused the rage that prompted the event. Sean Wain, 34, killed his wife Natalie, 33, and himself in an early morning shooting in May 2009. It has been reported that consumers of Chantix haven’t been sufficiently warned that the drug can cause rage, hostility and suicide. Mr. Wain, according to the Complaint, had been using Chantix for a week or two prior to his and Mrs. Wain’s deaths. This tragic event, a murder-suicide, left four children without parents. Victor H. Pribanic, a lawyer with Pribanic & Pribanic, who is located in White Oak, Penn., represents the two estates in the lawsuit. It will be interesting to follow this case as it develops.
