Pondimin

North Carolina Pondimin lawyer

Doctors and weight-loss clinics distributed the prescription diet drug Pondimin (fenfluramine). The dangerous drug Fen-Phen is a combination of Pondimin (the "Fen" part of Fen-Phen) and Redux. Drug maker American Home Products withdrew Pondimin, Redux and Fen-Phen from the market in 1997 upon request from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Consumers who used these drugs faced a risk of heart valve disease, according to studies.

A national settlement over these dangerous diet drugs lead to agreement with American Home Products to pay as much as $3.75 billion.
