- Hypertension Drug Avalide Recalled | Legal News | News Ticker
Millions of people suffer from some form of hypertension, and many of those who do need to depend on viable medication so that they can keep this condition under control and avoid the potentially disastrous results attached to this medical problem that include heart attacks and strokes. One of the most popular medications that’s been used in the United States to help manage hypertension is known as Avalide, and it’s manufactured by Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. and Sanofi-Aventis SA collectively. The companies have recently announced a recall of millions of tablets of this medication due to manufacturing concerns.
Specifically, more than 64 million of these Avalide tablets have been recalled on a voluntary basis by the manufacturers because problems were discovered with the manufacturing protocol that affected the efficacy of the medication that was being used. A lack of efficacy means that not enough of the active ingredient in these recalled Avalide tablets was absorbing into the systems of the people who were using them, meaning that they were not obtaining a dose of medication that was as strong as they thought they were getting or that they needed.
The long-term danger associated with the under-medication of hypertension is basically the same as the danger associated with not treating hypertension at all – heart attacks, heart failure and strokes. Therefore, the companies decided to initiate this massive Avalide recall even though estimates indicate that the medication generated more than $400 million per year in revenue for the companies who were collaborating on marketing these medications. No specific word was given regarding the nature of the manufacturing problem.

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!!
Working at Phillips Law Group has been great the 1st few years in I noticed how well organized and run this Firm was from Intake to Settlement the Client has the expertise of a staff member uniquely qualified for the particular stage of each Clients claim and all other Law firms try to emulate what we do here but none quite get it right because they lack one major component “Compassion”. We are a FAMILY not just a group of people/employees. We care deeply about each other and our clients’ we are considerate, compassionate and make sure that all our Clients’ needs are met from beginning to end. That’s because we treat our clients just like we treat each other. Nothing like walking through the office and saying Hello to fellow employees who always seem to be smiling. 16yrs in and it only seems to be getting better.
Many companies talk about teamwork but few practice it. Many companies talk about an employee friendly environment but few actually provide it. At Phillips Law Group the foundation of our success is making sure we work as a team and that we work in an environment that allows everyone to thrive and be at their best every day. Our firm understands that in order for the client to have a great experience the people responsible for that client’s case must be given all the necessary tools and encouragement to make that happen. That’s the Phillips Way. As a manager of this firm in charge of several employees as well as directly affecting the client’s experience I take tremendous pride in saying we live by these premises and we work hard to build on them and make them better every day. This is an amazing place because it has amazing people working here!
Great company and awesome service. Thanks Caroline fabos. Kudos to all.
Jon Jamieson was amazing to work with . He came through with all of his promises.
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.
