Alleged damages from Lindane
Reports of Neurological Side Effects when using LindaneLindane (gamma-Hexachlorocyclohexane) is an insecticide which is the active ingredient in several prescription shampoos and lotions used in the treatment of lice and scabies. After receiving reports of neurological damage to patients using Lindane containing products, the FDA issued a Public Health Advisory warning of potential adverse reactions to it's use, particularly in children and adults weighing less than 110 pounds and in patients with compromised immune systems.
Lindane containing products are considered "second line" treatments, that is, they are only prescribed if the primary treatment is not correcting the problem, or if for some reason the patient can't tolerate the preferred treatment.
Lindane can be absorbed through the skin and may cause seizures, tremors, convulsions or even death. It should not be taken internally and should not be used by children, older patients or pregnant women. Seizures, headaches, nausea, dizziness, tremors, blood disorders known as blood dyscrasias, aplastic anaemia, and death are some of the side effects that have been reported.
