Propulsid Heartburn Drug

Propulsid was a popular drug prescribed to treat heartburn in adults and colic in infants. Although Propulsid was approved for adult use, many children, mostly infants and premature babies, took Propulsid - and some have died or suffered irregular heartbeats. Our attorneys with Phillips Law Group in Phoenix and Arizona help those harmed by Propulsid.

Propulsid is not an antacid but instead helps push food through the stomach. People have died as a result of Propulsid related conditions and the drug has been withdrawn from the market.

Propulsid (cisapride) can cause fatal heart rhythm problems. Cases of serious heart arrhythmias, including ventricular fibrillation, ventricular arrhythmias and torsades de pointe and QT prolongation, cardiac arrest and sudden death have been observed in people taking Propulsid (cisapride). In rare cases, seizures have been reported. Nervous system side effects have included headaches, dizziness and fatigue.
