Important Information for Patients with Heart Problems
As we’ve learned by this point in the article, Tasigna may increase the risk of severe heart problems, especially when taken in conjunction with other medicines. Talk to your doctor about all the drugs you take before deciding whether to take Tasigna. Your heart function may need to be checked before and during treatment if you decide in favor of a regimen.
Can I Participate in a Class Action?
The law offices of Schmidt & Clark, LLP, have decided not to file a personal injury class action lawsuit over Tasigna, and are instead only filing individual claims on behalf of injured parties. We believe this decision is in the best interest of our clients, as class actions in defective drug litigation often result in “low-ball” settlement agreements and high attorney fees. If you’ve been injured, contact us today to learn more about your legal rights.
