AHP SETTLEMENT CLAIMS CAN STILL BE FILED FOR AORTIC AND MITRAL HEART VALVE INJURIES AND RELATED COMPLICATIONS:
We are accepting new Pondimin and Redux clients. Deadlines apply to when an injury must occur in order to qualify for compensation, and when you must file your claim for that injury. See below to learn what deadlines apply to you.
WHAT IS FEN-PHEN:
Fen-Phen is the common name of a weight loss protocol heavily marketed in the 1990's that combined phentermine with either fenfluramine (Pondimin) or dexfenfluramine (Redux). Pondimin and Redux were shown to cause damage to the mitral and aortic heart valves; and a serious lung condition called primary pulmonary hypertension. Pondimin and Redux were withdrawn from the U.S. market in 1997.
WHAT IS THE AHP DIET DRUG SETTLEMENT TRUST:
The AHP Settlement Trust was established to administer the aortic and mitral valve injury claims of registered Pondimin or Redux users.
