North Carolina Redux lawyer

Redux, a drug used to control weight, was taken off the market on Sept. 15, 1997, after an alarming number of Redux patients were found to have heart-valve damage. Despite concerns about high risks for consumers, the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) approved the use of Redux.

Redux has been linked to more than 100 deaths. American Home Products, the manufacturer for Redux, has agreed to pay or set aside $3.75 billion to settle lawsuits for the next 15 years stemming from the drug's link to heart-valve damage.

Redux side effects

Redux lawsuits focus on heart-valve disease among patients in addition to an often fatal lung condition known as PPH, or Primary Pulmonary Hypertension.

A Boston University School of Medicine study found that 28 percent of Redux or Fen-Phen users experienced heart-valve damage. (The dangerous drug Fen-Phen is a combination of Pondimin (the "Fen" part of Fen-Phen) and Redux.)
