: : Years ago before it was pulled off the market--a doctor put me on this for weight loss. Now I find out that I have permanent heart valve damage. I will have to take medicine forever or have a valve replacement. Please tell me has this happened to anyone else out there. NO I won't die from this but it doesn't make me feel very good since I trusted my doctor to give me something safe!

: : This Dr. I found put me on Proloid & Tenuate for weight loss. I was on it for more then two years. That was about 8 years ago and I haven't had any type of heart valve damange that I am aware of. Just last year I had an ekg done and no abnormalities were found. (I had also been on Phen-Fen) Thus the reason for the ekg. I'm sorry to hear about your condition and I wish you the best of health.

I just wanted to know if any of you have participated in the Nationwide Class-Action Settlement with "American Home Products Association" (the mother company of the maker of Fefluramine). There is now a class action suit going on and judgment was passed 2 months ago. You can still send your claim, or get a lawyer for this. Go to There are several forms to fill out. It ranges from people who have used the pills but still have not found any problems but might or will expect to find in the future, and also for those that have actual mitral valve damage because of it. You can get a settlement for free medical evaluation, echogardiograms, etc. You could get a monetary reward for the damage that has been done to your heart and to your overall health. Do look into this. This suit started last April of last year and has now won. I believe they are still receiving or accepting settlement forms. Don't let this one pass, your health is not 100% perfect because of these drugs. You can get compensated for this. This is a billion dollar settlement to thousands of people nationwide. Good luck.
