BAYCOL® – BAYCOL® is a cholesterol-lowering medication that was initially approved by the FDA in 1997. BAYCOL® was prescribed to reduce cholesterol and to reduce the risk of heart disease. Health problems which have been attributed to BAYCOL® usage include death, kidney failure, liver injury, and a rare disease called Rhabdomyolysis. Rhabdomyolysis can cause severe muscle pain, most frequently in the lower back and calves. It can also lead to fatal kidney failure and other organ damage. Other symptoms of Rhabdomyolysis include muscle pain, weakness, tenderness, fever, dark urine, nausea, and vomiting. If you have formerly used BAYCOL® and you experienced any of these symptoms in proximity to the use of this drug, please call us at (843) 746-2360 or toll free at (866) 554-3500 for assistance with an investigation into your rights to pursue a claim.

MERIDIA® – Our law firm is still investigating claims on behalf of the users of this popular diet drug manufactured by Abbott Laboratories. Because of reported cases of heart damage related to the use of this drug, the consumer advocacy group Public Citizen has been lobbying the FDA to withdraw MERIDIA® from the market. If you were a MERIDIA® user and you would like assistance with an investigation into whether you have a viable claim, please call us at (843) 746-2360 or toll free at (866) 554-3500.

SERZONE® – SERZONE® is an anti-depressant that has been linked to liver failure. According to the manufacturer, the rate of liver failure associated with SERZONE® use is about three to four times greater than that for non-users.

Bristol-Myers, the maker of SERZONE®, issued a manufacturer’s warning on January 9, 2002 telling healthcare providers that “cases of life-threatening hepatic failure have been reported in patients treated with cialis 4 tb SERZONE®.” On December 7, 2001, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration told Bristol-Myers that it must include “black box” warnings on all SERZONE® labels. The FDA now requires that SERZONE® package labels include warnings that “cases of life-threatening hepatic failure have been reported in patients treated with SERZONE®.” If you have used SERZONE® and feel you might have a liver injury or ailment caused by the use of this drug, please call us at (843) 746-2360 or toll free at 877-936-9707 if you would like us to help you investigate your potential claim for damages.
