Fen-Phen

Commonly referred to as Fen-Phen, the combination of fenfluramine and phentermine at one time was a highly touted weight loss or anti-obesity medication.  In 1997 the FDA requested that it be withdrawn from the market after reports surfaced linking the combination to heart valve disease and pulmonary hypertension.

The Mayo Clinic had found cases of a rare valvular disease in some women who had taken Fen-Phen.  Other doctors also reported abnormal echocadiograms in some women taking Fen-Phen for weight loss and more evidence of heart valve damage appeared.

By 2005 it was reported that over 50,000 product liability lawsuits had been filed against the manufacturers of the Fen-Phen drugs seeking damages in the billions of dollars.
