Phenylpropanolamine (PPA) Cause Primary Pulmonary Hypertension - PPH

Dexatrim and other Diet Pills with PPA to Blame

Phenylpropanolamine (PPA) a synthetic sympathomimetic amine once a common ingredient in appetite suppressants such as Acutrim and Dexatrim has been linked to a rare and often fatal disease called Primary Pulmonary Hypertension - PPH that has no known cause and results in the progressive narrowing of the blood vessels of the lungs which as a result causes high blood pressure in these blood vessels and eventually leads to heart failure. The lungs contain millions of tiny blood vessels called capillaries. These capillaries are extremely small, just wide enough for blood cells to move through. The capillaries are lined with endothelial cells that prevent blood from leaking out of the vessel. The outside of the blood vessels are muscle type cells that expand and contract as blood moves through from the heart into the lungs. PPH causes the cell lining of the lung's blood vessels to weaken and allow leakage. The leaking of blood out of the vessels causes the muscles that surround the blood vessels to constrict. This continuous constriction increases the pressure within the blood vessels and cuts off blood flow. The constriction gradually worsens, eventually increasing the pulmonary arterial pressure.

PPA in Dexatrim Recalled

The Federal Drug Administration's (FDA) Nonprescription Drugs Advisory Committee (NDAC) determined that there is an association between phenylpropanolamine and hemorrhagic stroke and recommended that PPA not be considered generally recognized as safe for OTC use as a nasal decongestant or for weight control. On November 6, 2000, the FDA released a Public Health Advisory asking companies that market pharmaceutical or drug products containing PPA to voluntarily discontinue marketing them and alerted consumers to the risks associated with the use of products containing PPA. Dexatrim once contained PPA and later for a short time contained ephedra (ma huang) an herbal supplement containing ephedrine alkaloids.

Dexatrim Related Strokes

Phenylpropanolamine (or PPA) in Dexatrim has been linked to an increased risk of hemorrhagic stroke, commonly referred to as "bleeding in the brain". Hemorrhagic stroke can result in death or severe disability. A recent Yale University study of hemorrhagic stroke victims suggests that women, age 18-49, were at almost 16 times greater risk of stroke within the first three days of taking appetite suppressants containing phenylpropanolamine (PPA) than those who did not take phenylpropanolamine (PPA). Moreover, the Yale study suggests that overall, hemorrhagic stroke victims were about 50% more likely to have ingested phenylpropanolamine (PPA) within the 3 days prior to the stroke than the control subjects.

The last time I ever took Fen Phen, Pondimin or Redux was back in 1997, but recently I have been diagnosed with PPH or Primary Pulmonary Hypertension. Is it too late to file a PPH claim or lawsuit? How long can I wait till I file a PPH lawsuit? Due to possible running of an applicable Statute of Limitations (filing deadlines for a PPH Lawsuit), it is VERY IMPORTANT that you discuss this with an PPH attorney experienced with clients with PPH and with a proven track record of hard work and dedication to his clients. In some states, the PPH victim may only have up to ONE YEAR to file a PPH lawsuit or litigation from the date of the diagnosis or injury. Filing deadlines for PPH claims in other states may be longer.
