Fen-Phen, Redux and Pondimin information
Fen-Phen, Redux and Pondimin information
    This site is designed to provide information about the health risks and the legal claims that may arise from the widespread marketing, prescription and use of diet drugs such as Fen-Phen, Redux and Pondimin.

    Many members of the public may have been exposed to serious injury or death by the manufacturers, distributors and marketers of these diet drugs. Aggressive marketing of these highly profitable diet drugs has led consumers to believe that the use of these drugs is a safe easy way to lose weight. Many people had assumed that since these diet drugs were approved individually by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that extensive testing had been done proving these drugs to be safe before they were allowed on the market. That assumption is wrong. Very little testing had been done and the testing that was done has shown some serious and in some cases fatal side effects.

    This web site is designed to provide a concise, non-technical explanation and overview of the medical and legal issues concerning the marketing of these drugs, the health consequences to consumers, and the legal claims consumers may have against the manufacturers and distributors of these diet drugs.



 

What Are These Diet Drugs? :
The combination use of Fenfluramine and phentermine and with dexfenfluramine is not approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), but was not illegal when these drugs were on the market. Doctors are generally permitted to make "off-label" or non-approved uses of drugs if the drugs are approved for any use.

Symptoms Of Injury From Fen-Phen, Redux Or Pondimin Use:
Usually the first symptom of injury from these diet drugs is shortness of breath. Medically shortness of breath is called dyspnea
