Fen-Phen and Redux Heart Valve Problems
At Phillips Law Group in Phoenix, our lawyers understand how scary the side effects of drugs can be. Fen-phen and Redux were prescribed to help overweight individuals lose weight. Unfortunately, many suffered serious consequences, including heart valve damage, primary pulmonary hypertension, and secondary pulmonary hypertension.
If you or a loved one has taken fen-phen or Redux and have suffered from cardiovascular problems, please contact our attorneys at the Phoenix law firm of Phillips Law Group. We can help you evaluate your situation and determine whether or not you have a viable defective drug claim.
Primary pulmonary hypertension (PPH) is a rare disease of unknown cause that results in the progressive narrowing of the blood vessels of the lungs, causing high blood pressure in these blood vessels and eventually leading to heart failure. Secondary pulmonary hypertension (SPH) is the result of other types of lung disease, abnormal breathing processes or heart disease.
Use of certain fenfluramine and dexfenfluramine drugs (fen-phen) and the anti-obesity drug Redux have been found to increase the risk of developing PPH, especially with use lasting more than three months. Initial symptoms of PPH may be very minor, and diagnosis may be delayed for several years until symptoms worsen. Typical symptoms may include:
- Shortness of breath following exertion
- Excessive fatigue
- Dizziness, fainting, and weakness
- Ankle swelling
- Bluish lips and skin
- Chest pain
If you have taken either fen-phen or Redux for more than three months and have any shortness of breath, chest pain or unusual fatigue, the Federal Drug Administration and the American Board of Cardiology recommend that you have an echocardiogram.

Kathy Hudson and Donato Giovanatto. Continues to go above and beyond the call of duty. Reaching out to the insurance company about the damage to the vehicle. Forcing them to take responsibility.

Sophia H is very helpful.
I tried a few previous law firms and none would take my car accident case with confidence they could get my anything. Phillips law group took my case and although it took around 4 years to get this case settled as I was in treatment, they never let up with insurance adjusters and they got me as much money as possible. They worked hard for me and advocated for me. Shoutout to key individuals who worked my case nonstop of the years, Robert Ross & Jasmine, you are AMAZING!
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!!
Phillips law group has an amazing staff and i recommend them to everyone.
