Facts About Tequin
Tequin is an antibiotic drug manufactured by Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMS). It is used to eliminate bacteria that cause infections such as pneumonia, bronchitis, and sexually transmitted diseases such as uncomplicated gonorrhea. It also treats sinus, urinary tract, kidney, respiratory tract, and skin infections.
Tequin has been known to cause serious cases of low blood sugar, high blood sugar, and some fatalities. Several Tequin lawsuits have been administered against BMS for inadequate labeling of the prescription drug and the conditions caused as a result of its use.
Tequin lawsuits can be expertly handled by the attorneys at our Phoenix , Arizona based firm. We provide legal representation to ensure a clients rights are protected.
BMS recently announced its plans to halt production and sales of Tequin. In February of 2006, the Food and Drug Administration added side effect warnings to Tequin labeling to inform consumers about the serious blood sugar risks posed by the drug.
Tequin, prescribed to over a million people in 2005, has been linked to 388 cases of low and high blood sugar in the United States. According to the consumer interest group Public Citizen, 159 patients have required hospitalization and 20 people have died due to serious Tequin blood glucose abnormalities.
BMS has decided to stop production of Tequin, however, the drug will still be in circulation in hospitals and pharmacies around the U.S. Existing stock will not be pulled from the shelves, imposing additional risks to consumers.

I would like to send special thanks to Phillips Law Group for giving me the opportunity to be a part of the Best Law Firm here in the Valley. During these troubling times with the epidemic, Phillips Law Group has masterfully created this family-like environment while still maintaining a professional and business-like approach for all their clients. Thru impeccable leadership that is unmatched by other law firms to the Multi-diverse employment opportunities that many employees advance within the firm; Phillips Law Group has not only distanced themselves from all other competition in the Personal Injury field but also has innovatively changed the narrative of being a great law institution. From providing Employee Appreciation Day to celebrating all major Holiday including great competitive contests; Phillips Law Group has the total participation of all employees to help contribute to the continued success of this firm. So in closing I would like to thank Senior Administration (Jeffery Phillips, Eva Chiaramonte, and Tim Tonkin) along with all of my colleagues and many friends for help making Phillips Law Group a unique and wonderful place to call my place of employment for 6+ years.
Great experience! Took care of pretty much everything, and I always felt like I want in good hands. Caroline Fa. was also a great help with everything. She always returned my calls and I never felt unheard. Even after my case she would still help me with my insurance documents.
I want to thank attorneys Tim and Robert and the paralegal Bethany for all they had done on my case. They were all empathetic, knowledgeable and professional. All my questions were answered, emails returned in a timely matter, and promises fulfilled. I recommend Phillips Law Group if you need help with your injury case.
My review is for Kathy Hudson a legal assistant at the law firm. She is great! She is very professional and a fair based person. She was never rude to me and always called me back. She listened to me and had my best interest as number 1. Mr Nasir who is a supervisor at law firm also was very professional and helpful. Not sure if spelling his name correctly but sorry if not. As far as mr Ross and the lady that runs the front desk reception I would say they are the most unprofessional and rude people I have met at a law firm in my life especially beings they were representing me. But Kathy made it overall a better experience. Thx Kathy.
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.
Liz was great
Thank you Phillips Law Group for all the support and back to school assistance we appreciate it.
Phillips law group is a great firm! Caroline is great.
It’s an Honor and a Privilege to work for a company that cares about its employees and clients for 12 years. I’ve seen Management go out of their way to help someone whether it’s a personal matter or work related. I am also reminded of many occasions where a Client needed urgent help and we as a Team were able to get the person immediate assistance. At Phillips Law we make that happen through Teamwork and a dedication to our profession. I’ve had numerous jobs in several other fields, those were just jobs. This is a home. Many of us have been here for quite a few years, it feels like one large extended family.
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.
