- Abbott Laboratories Announces Recall of Diet Pill Meridia
Millions of people in the United States are overweight to the point where their doctors have warned them of the health problems that can arise as a result of this condition. As a result, consumers have been looking for options to help them slim down in order to improve their long-term health prospects. One such medication that was manufactured by Abbott Laboratories is known as the diet pill Meridia, and it generated millions of dollars in annual revenue for the company.
Unfortunately for many people, dangerous Meridia side effects were also eventually discovered, and now comes word that Abbott Laboratories, at the request of the FDA, has announced a diet pill Meridia recall.
Meridia Side Effects
The Meridia recall comes on the heels of findings in studies that were meant to test the benefits of this weight loss drug and weigh those benefits against the potential risks involved.
These studies showed that those who used Meridia faced a higher probability of heart attacks and strokes than those who used other weight loss strategies. The FDA had already required Abbott Laboratories to issue clear warnings about the dangers of Meridia side effects, but apparently, those steps were not enough to protect the public from unreasonable harm from using the Meridia pills.

This Meridia recall comes on the heels of the stopping of the marketing of Meridia in Europe earlier in 2010, and while these steps could be positive in nature, they won’t help those who have already been harmed by this drug.

Although my accident was fortunately not a major one, The Phillips Law Group AZ treated it as such. Their staff, specifically Mr Juan Roque was very professional, courteous and most importantly very informative. Mr Roque's attentive service was phenomenal and I highly recommend this firm!
The lawyers here are of top quality. Especially Trey Dayes, who was always respectful and hard-working.
Phillips Law Group does so much for the community!!! I especially enjoy seeing Juan Roque out there. This gentle giant always has a smile on his face and is a part of a caring and giving team.
I was recently served court documents that I was being sued from an accident that happened years ago. For someone who has never been through something like this and not familiar with the court lingo or where to even begin, it was very frustrating and stressful. I reached out to a family member who knew Tracy Laskos and the great reputation of Phillips Law Group and within the hours of the initial call for help, I had a direct number to Lead Attorney Nassar. Nassar heard my case and almost instantly put me at ease by explaining the process and how easy it was to handle. Nassar spoke to me like he was a friend, not like I was a client. I am so grateful to Tracy, Nasar and of course my cousin Stephanie for helping out and giving me the direction that I needed to get through this situation. I plan on referring my friends, family and patients that are in need of a personal injury Attorney to Phillips Law Group. Thank you!!
