We are Investigating Claims that Amiodarone Manufacturers Knew of the Dangers
We are currently investigating claims that although the drug was approved by the FDA as a last resort medication for a severe disorder called ventricular arrhythmia, PAR and Wyeth promoted the use of Amiodarone off label for patients with atrial fibrillation. In fact, estimates are that more than 2 million scripts were written in ONE YEAR for atrial fibrillation and other heart conditions that the drug was not approved to treat. Allegations we are investigating include that Amiodarone has caused vision problems and blindness, lung damage, liver damage, severe medical complications, and the deaths of possibly thousands of patients.
