The Dangers of Salix Pharmaceutical's OsmoPrep and Visicol
At Rheingold, Valet, Rheingold, McCartney & Giuffra LLP, we handle a wide range of drug liability lawsuits, including those involving Salix Pharmaceutical's OsmoPrep and Visicol. We recently filed a suit In North Carolina on behalf of four injured plaintiff. See our press release.
Salix Pharmaceutical's OsmoPrep and Visicol are prescription drugs for use as a bowel cleaner that people would use in preparation for a colonoscopy.
The liquid form of these oral phosphates had been used in Fleet Phospho-Soda, an over-the-counter product manufactured by C. B. Fleet in Virginia. This litigation has been consolidated in Cleveland, Ohio. Our partner has been appointed lead trial counsel for that litigation.
Use of these products 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 cases involving Salix Pharmaceutical's OsmoPrep and related kidney disease. If you are suffering because of taking this product, we will stand up for your rights.
