many people who took Fen Phen are just now experiencing symptoms indicating they have heart problems
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) January 27, 2012
The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than people who tried Fen Phen and experience heart valve damage. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.
By September 30th 1997 the FDA had received 144 provider-initiated reports of Fen Phen and heart valve damage. The drugs are associated with valvular lesions and leakage on both sides of the heart, particularly the left valve. Fen Phen was a diet pill that was common in the 1990′s.
Many people who took Fen Phen are just now experiencing symptoms indicating that they have heart problems. Unless a patient has an electrocardiogram, often the early stages of valvular leakage are overlooked.
AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, can provide helpful advice and simple solutions including how to get in contact with legal council so that, in case of Fen Phen adverse effects, someone can easily and inexpensively deal with it. As Mr. Burke, director of Media Relations for AttorneyOne.com, added, “What all this information really illustrates is that threat of severe adverse effects from Fen Phen remains. For that reason, our focus should squarely fall on getting the word out and assisting people in finding the right legal assistance.”
Several lawsuits were filed against the manufacturers of Fen Phen including a nationwide class action lawsuit that was settled in January 2002. On October 15th 2010, Wythe, the company manufacturing Fen Phen, went on to appeal many of these lawsuits but the federal appeals court refused to rehear a Fen Phen lawsuit. To date, Wythe has paid out billions of dollars in lawsuits.
If you have recently been diagnosed with a heart valve leak and you took a diet pill in the 1990s, you might be able to file a Fen Phen lawsuit.
