We represent the mother of a 14 year old girl in a wrongful death case. The child was having headaches so her mother took her to the defendant neurologist. He prescribed 200 mlg of desipramine (off label) without doing any kind of a cardiac work up. The child died of a desipramine overdose 33 days later. The defendant surrendered his license after charges were filed in connection with unrelated malpractice upon eleven of his patients.  Desipramine is a dangerous drug and if a doctor prescribes it for your child get a second opinon.

I am preparing to depose Dr. Stephen D Silberstein of Philadelphia Pennsylvania who is testifying in behalf of the neurologist. I would be interested in any experience anyone has had with Dr. Silberstein and I will be happy to make his deposition available to anyone who wants it upon request.
