    Fen Phen Side Effects: Primary Pulmonary Hypertension

    Fen-Phen, a diet drug marketed as Redux, Fenfluramine, Dexfenfluramine, and Pondimin, had been considered safe for many years until the FDA requested its removal from store shelves in 1997. Rising reports of heart valve disease caused the FDA to take the action against Fen-Phen, particularly after echocardiograms of women who had ingested the drug indicated a 30% rate of heart valve abnormality, even though no other symptoms had been reported.

    atients suffering from Primary Pulmonary Hypertension (PPH) caused by Fen-Phen are NOT involved in the Nationwide Class Action Settlement Agreement with American Home Products. PPH patients must file independent lawsuits to make legal claims. TriMark Legal Funding LLC funds on both the Fen-Phen class action suit and independent PPH lawsuits.

    What is Fen-Phen?

    Fen-Phen (also marketed under the names Phen-Fen, Pondimin and Redux) is an anti-obesity medication consisting of two drugs: fenfluramine and phentermine. Fenfluramine, and later, a related drug, dexfenfluramine, was marketed by Wyeth, now known as American Home Products.

    Fen-Phen Maker Agrees to $3.75 Billion Settlement

    American Home Products Corporation (AHP), makers of the diet drug combination Fen-Phen, agreed Thursday to pay $3.75 billion in compensation to thousands of people who used the diet drugs and developed Primary Pulmonary Hypertension (PPH) before they were removed from the market in 1997 after being linked to heart valve disease.

    After reports of valvular heart disease and pulmonary hypertension, primarily in women who had been undergoing treatment with Fen-Phen, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requested its withdrawal from the market in September 1997.

    Fen-Phen decreased hunger by increasing Seratonin levels in the brain, which then caused the user to have feelings of fullness or satiety. Fenfluramine (Fen) the first ingredient in the drug, when used alone was shown to cause severe mood swings and depression. So, phentermine (Phen) was added to Fen, because it effectively counterbalanced depression, and the two drugs working as one were able to stave off hunger, without any of the resultant emotional problems.

    But, it was found that the combination of these two ingredients in Fen-Phen was not safe, and severe health consequences resulted from patient usage, despite Fen Phen lawyers arguing there was no connection.

    As a result of these findings, Fen-Phen class-action lawsuits have grown to over 500,000 since April 2005, according to American Lawyer magazine, and Fen-Phen lawyers should only anticipate more filings to come.

    Latest Developments in the Fen-Phen Lawsuit…

    Fen Phen lawyer Cynthia K. Garrett reports that worsened injury claims may still be filed for those who took the diet drugs Pondimin or Redux, registered with the AHP Settlement Trust by May 3, 2003, established the required baseline injury during the Screening Period that ended in 2003, did not participate in the Seventh Amendment Supplemental Fund, and currently qualify for a Matrix Compensation Level and dollar value above any previous award received. Garrett explained, "Whether you can still file a claim depends upon the nature and extent of your injury, when your worst injury was first diagnosed, and what has previously been filed in your case. The criteria you must meet to file a claim today is discussed at length on my website, CKGLawFim.com. I've provided you with a quick summary below."

    Pfizer just can't get rid of the specter of fen-phen. Fifteen years after the diet drug was removed from the market over serious health concerns, litigation lingers and the drugmaker's move to kill that off fell short yesterday. Pfizer has reserved $21 billion for fen-phen litigation over the years but hoped to have remaining suits dismissed. But a judge in Philadelphia, where most of the suits are consolidated, wasn't buying it. He said plaintiffs can use studies from experts that indicate that fen-phen can instigate primary pulmonary hypertension, even more than a decade after consumers stopped taking the appetite suppressant. Pfizer tells Bloomberg that it is weighing its legal options. Pfizer bought the problem when it acquired the drug's developer Wyeth in 2009, 12 years after fen-phen was banned in the U.S. More than 6 million prescriptions had been written when it was on the market, Bloomberg says, and at one time there… Read more
    Study Shows Lingering Heart Valve Problems in Former Users of Banned Obesity Drugs Fenfluramine and Dexfenfluramine Two banned obesity drugs may have lingering effects on the heart, according to a new study. The study shows that heart valve problems linked to the banned obesity drugs fenfluramine and/or dexfenfluramine typically last years after stopping those drugs. The FDA ordered fenfluramine and dexfenfluramine off the market in September 1997 after those drugs were linked to heart valve problems. Fenfluramine was one of the ingredients in "fen-phen," and dexfenfluramine is closely related to fenfluramine. The "phen" in fen-phen refers to a drug called phentermine, which wasn't banned. The new study, published online today in BMC Medicine, shows what happened to the hearts of 5,743 former users of fenfluramine and/or dexfenfluramine. Heart Valve Problems The patients were seen by doctors including Charles Dahl, MD, of the Central Utah Clinic in Provo, Utah, between July 1997 and February 2004. During that… Read more
    Two of the owners of the Preakness champion Curlin were indicted yesterday by a federal grand jury on a charge that they conspired to defraud their clients in a $200 million lawsuit settlement with the maker of the diet drug fen-phen. The grand jury in Covington, Ky., indicted the lawyers Shirley A. Cunningham Jr., 52, and William J. Gallion, 56, on one count each of conspiracy to commit wire fraud. If convicted, each could receive a maximum of 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. The federal sentencing guidelines are no longer mandatory, so it is unlikely they will receive the maximum penalty if they are found guilty. The grand jury also handed up one forfeiture count each, which would require the defendants, if … Read more
    In the fall of 1997, American Home Products Corporation, which became Wyeth in 2002, withdrew the drugs Pondimin (fenfluramine), and Redux (dexfenfluramine), which were prescribed together with phentermine for weight loss, in a combination called "fen-phen," for short. Fen-phen causes the life-threatening lung disorder known as primary pulmonary hypertension, or PPH. According to the Pulmonary Hypertension Association, PPH is a rare blood vessel disorder of the lung in which the pressure in the pulmonary artery rises above normal levels and can become life threatening. As the blood is pumped through the arteries in the lungs, it receives oxygen; this oxygenated blood returns to the heart where it is then transported to the rest of the body through the aorta and other arteries. Changes to the … Read more
    Three attorneys have been temporarily suspended from practicing law in Kentucky because of questions about the way they divided a $200 million settlement from a fen-phen lawsuit. The Kentucky Supreme Court took the action in written rulings released last Thursday. In an order signed by Deputy Chief Justice Will T. Scott, justices said they found probable cause to believe that the attorneys had diverted funds to their own use. Linda Gosnell, chief counsel for the Kentucky Bar Association, had argued before the Supreme Court last week that the attorneys — William Gallion, Shirley Cunningham Jr. and Melbourne Mills — improperly took more than their share of the settlement. The lawyers, all from Lexington, represented hundreds of clients in a lawsuit over the diet drug. “Their conduct was drastic,” Gosnell told the court. “This is a case of absolute, unbridled greed.” The Kentucky Bar Association’s Inquiry Commission had recommended the temporary… Read more
