A Drug Injury Linked to Diet Drugs Could Lead to a Texas Personal Injury Claim

Posted by John J. Kahn, Jr. | Mar 16, 2012 | 0 Comments

Most people begin taking a diet drug to shed excess weight and live a healthier lifestyle. However, when the drugs result in serious side effects, instead of beginning a new chapter of their lives, consumers find themselves suffering severe health issues and filing drug injury claims with a Pearland lawyer.

Weight loss is a billion-dollar industry, and drug manufacturers want their piece of the pie. When companies act unscrupulously, or when weight loss medications cause serious harm, you may be able to file a Texas personal injury claim with drug injury lawyers and obtain monetary restitution.

There are a number of diet and weight loss medications that have made headlines due to a rising number of drug injury lawsuits, such as: 
  • Metabolife;
  • Ephedra;
  • Meridia;
  • Hydroxycut;
  • Xenadrine;
  • Phen-Fen; and
  • Emagrece Sim (Brazilian Diet Pill). 
Many of these drugs are linked to a host of dangerous side effects that consumers are oftentimes not aware of. Some of the scary side effects that drug injury lawyers have witnessed from these weight loss pills include: 
  • anxiety, psychosis and insomnia;
  • hepatitis;
  • increased blood pressure and heart rate;
  • seizures and strokes;
  • irregular heartbeat, arrhythmia and heart attacks; and
  • death. 
If you believe you may be experiencing any potentially harmful side effects from a medication you're taking, contact your doctor immediately. Then, as soon as you're able, consult a Pearland lawyer about filing a Texas personal injury claim.
