Are Any of These Fen Phen Side Effects Costing You or a Loved One’s Health, Time, Money, and Peace of Mind?

Fen Phen was taken off the market when the FDA received reports of a rare heart valve disease among its users. In a wave of public fury it was pulled from the shelves… because it had been discovered that the company making the drug already knew it would harm their customers!

Before it was recalled however, doctors had already written over 14 million subscriptions to innocent unsuspecting patients. They had no idea the  damage this drug could and would do to their health. Even still, many of the side-effects listed above don’t reveal themselves until 10 or even 20 years later…

The good news is, you may still have the opportunity to claim compensation through the established Fen Phen settlement trust. Even though it has been many years since the initial scandal you can still receive compensation from the manufacturer.

Here’s what you need to know about filing a claim:

  1. If you have NEVER filed a claim before you still might be able to…but ALL claims end this year

    Only because I cant get $100 they need because in Florida the clinic miss my ekocardigram I dont continue with my case, that was in year 2000 What can I do now.

  2. I took Fastin 20 years ago and have palpations and shortness of breath. Is this product the same?

  3. I had to have heart surgery to correct my heart problems.

  4. I took phen Fen and was part of the 1st settlement. I got 500.00 for the cost of the meds. When I was examined by a cardiologist he stated in his report that I did have a murmur that had never been discovered before but he did not believe that it was caused by Phen Fen. I had my aortic valve replaced 2 1/2 years ago. They say that I was born with the defective valve but it went undiscovered until I had my 1st ultrasound for the Phen Fen lawsuit.
