Drug Liability Attorneys in New York City
Fleet Phospho Soda has been around since the 1800's, and has traditionally been used as a laxative. However, in the 1980's, as colonoscopies became more common, C.B. Fleet Company, Inc. began marketing the product as a bowel cleanser, dramatically upping the recommended dosage. This decision has been linked to serious disorders and wrongful death for people who have used this product at the heightened dosage.

The Dangers of Fleet Phospho Soda
At Rheingold, Valet, Rheingold, McCartney & Giuffra LLP, we handle a wide range of drug liability lawsuits, including those involving Fleet Phospho Soda.
Fleet Phospho Soda is an over-the-counter drug. Its manufacturer recommended it for use as a bowel cleaner that people would use in preparation for a colonoscopy, doubling the recommended dosage.
Use of this product has been linked to serious kidney problems called acute phosphate nephropathy (APN), also known as nephrocalcinosis. APN can lead to kidney failure, thus requiring victims to endure a lifetime of kidney dialysis and other involved treatments. In some cases, APN can be fatal.
Our attorneys are well-versed in drug liability laws and have handled numerous cases involving Fleet Phospho Soda and the related kidney disease. If you are suffering because of taking this product, we will stand up for your rights.
