Cardizem Settlement
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

If you have taken the hypertension drug, Cardizem, you may be eligible to collect a portion of a 21-million dollar settlement. It appears the drug bug makers violated antitrust laws and now are ordered to pay you back.

High blood pressure killed 45-thousand Americans last year, and thousands more depend on blood pressure drugs like Cardizem to keep theirs in check.

James Welsh, M.D., Family Medicine

"Hypertension is a disease that is treatable, but not curable."

Doctor James Welsh says consumers who took Cardizem or it's generic equivalents between 1998 and 2003 may be entitled to some money.

Dr. Welsh

"The Cardizem settlement is great news for patients with high blood pressure on cardizem."

 That's because the case alleges that the drug makers violated antitrust laws and overcharged consumers purchasing the drug, and now consumers are entitled to a portion of a 21-million dollar settlement.

Dr. Welsh

"As a practicing physician, I am concerned about my low income patients who are on maintenance medications like Cardizem that need to take them on a regular basis who may have difficulty affording their medication."

 The lawsuit was brought by the Attorney's General of all 50 states and now they say it's time for the drug maker to pay up. The defendants have denied any wrongdoing or liability. 

 To participate in the settlement consumers need to act before September 23, 2003.
