Hissey Kientz Launches Meridia Recall Practice

Stem Legal is pleased to announce that our client, product injury firm Hissey Kientz, has created a new section of its website dedicated to the recalled diet drug Meridia. The new section includes information about the weight loss drug Meridia, a discussion of the events leading to the recall, and information about the side effects of Meridia.

Meridia was recalled in October 2010 due to its link with an increased risk of cardiovascular side effects. Previously, the European Medicines Agency issued a Meridia recall in January 2010 based on preliminary data about the cardiovascular side effects of the drug. According to a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine, patients taking the diet drug Meridia have an increased risk of severe cardiovascular side effects. Specifially, research found that Meridia users were 28% more likely to suffer a heart attack and 36% more likely to suffer a stroke than those who were given a placebo.
