Longs v. Wyeth (Redux Wrongful Death)
Mary Buchanan took Wyeth’s diet drug Redux (dexfenfluramine) for several months during 1996 and 1997. Several years later, she developed primary pulmonary hypertension (PPH) and died in December 2003, allegedly as a result of having taken Redux. Wyeth marketed and sold Redux after its approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in April 1996. It was taken off the market the following year.
