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 .

Jasmine Delgado is an amazing paralegal. She was patient, kind and extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommend Phillips law group
I have been with Phillips Law Group for a little over a year and I have learned what teamwork and family in a workplace looks like. There is always someone around to lend a helping hand, which is something I appreciate and cherish. I feel a sense of joy coming to work every day because of my co-workers as well as being able to help people in what can be a scary and stressful situation. I currently work as a Litigation Legal Assistant with an amazing team. When I started here, I was not very knowledgeable in personal injury. I was lucky to have been placed with an amazing team who was willing to take time to teach and pass on some great skills that have been a huge aid in helping me be successful in my position. I would recommend working here at Phillips Law Group, because they care about their employees and there is so much room for growth.
My paralegal , Caroline , was on top of her game - very responsive and always answered any questions I had and in a timely manner . My attorney Rob ,was the best attorney I ever had . He explained everything in great detail and had a great sense or humor . He really knows how to bring light To tough , unfortunate situations - I would absolutely recommend them at anyone -
Sophia H is very helpful.
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.
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. ❤️
Thank you Phillips Law Group for all the support and back to school assistance we appreciate it.
