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. It might also be wise to consult our experienced attorneys in Phoenix and surrounding areas of Arizona at Phillips Law Group. Contact us by calling 1-800-706-3000 .

Phillips is the best!! Love all that they do to give back to the community and how much they help those who are experiencing homelessness. ❤️
I enjoy my work day here at Phillips Law Group and generally speaking I love my clients. Every day brings a new client or task to keep me on my toes. Administration keeps open communication and is hilarious most of the time! I love the way we celebrate FRIDAY, holidays and birthdays and how everything is so competitive. All in all I’m so fortunate to be here and I enjoy what I do.
Sophia H is a pleasure to work with! Thanks for all you do.
The lawyers here are of top quality. Especially Trey Dayes, who was always respectful and hard-working.
Jeffrey Phillips is truly a brilliant attorney and businessman. I would not hesitate for a moment to contact him if I needed a personal injury attorney in Arizona, you would be fortunate to have him and his team. If you have a car accident, slip and fall in a store, or get punched in the face, call Phillips.
I would like to thank Vanessa Rodriguez for helping me with my case because I was in total shock about the accident. She had listened to all my concerns and had answered every question I had . She was great !!!
They knew exactly how to explain the case to me in a way that I would understand it. They gave me hope that my life wasn’t over.
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!
Juan Roque has been integral with my legal needs. Communication has been easy. He conveys information I can easily understand without a lot of "Legal Fluff" jargon. I will certainly do business with Phillips Legal team again and refer them to my friends and family.
