What Are The Grounds For Hydroxycut Litigation?
If you have suffered liver failure, kidney failure, a heart attack, stroke or other adverse reaction after taking Hydroxycut, you may qualify for compensation. Others have filed Xenadrine Lawsuits, Hydroxycut lawsuits, and lawsuits for Metabolife 356. In these cases, the amount of compensation would vary, depending on the extent of the damage, any medical costs incurred as a result, and any long term effects that resulted from having taken products containing ephedra.

The basis for damages are assistance with treatment costs, and financial compensation to attempt to offset the pain caused by the damage from a stroke or heart attack casued by supplements such as Hyrdoxycut, Metabolife 356, or Xenadrine.

There are various lawyers devoted to such cases and most offer services on a no-win no-fee basis. The likelihood of successful litigation can be ascertained, in part, from the sheer number of different legal firms offering their services specifically on this subject, but each Metabolife lawsuit, Hyrdoxycut lawsuit, or Xenadrine lawsuit will depend on the specific factors of each case. The circumstances of each person's use of the supplement will differ and may determine the outcome of any legal action brought by them. There are also local issues, involving specific State laws, which may alter the treatment of each case. The same is true of the many other supplements contianing ephedra, many of which are listed below.

What Has Been Done So Far With Regard To Hydroxycut Litigation?
Courts have overseen the awarded settlements to individuals who have been harmed by products containing ephedra. A jury in Alaska awarded $13.3 to a woman who suffered a stroke after taking a weight-loss product containing ephedrine in February 2001. Between 1994 and mid-1999, supplement companies settled nearly three dozen personal-injury and wrongful-death lawsuits involving ephedra or ephedrine. Many more suits are pending including Xandrine lawsuits and lawsuits for Metabolife 356 or Hydroxycut.

What Options Do I Have If I Have Been Affected By Hydroxycut? Obviously, the first thing to do if affected by ephedra is to stop using products that contain ephedra and to seek medical attention for any resulting injuries.

The basis for legal proceedings will often be to ease the financial burden brought about the damages caused by the side effects of ephedra. A simple search for "ephedra lawyers" on any search engine will result in several options, and a multitude of qualified lawyers who specialize in your case. Similarly, a look in any local business directory for lawyers specializing in personal accidents and damages will result in someone equally eager to take your case. With regard to treatment, your local doctor will be able to offer advice and a realistic diagnosis of any effects of the drug.

What Are The Treatments For The Disorders Caused By Ephedra?
Fortunately, many of the short term effects of ephedra toxicity disappear when you stop taking the drug. However, the more serious side effects like stroke, hypertension, or heart damage may require continued medical care. Check with your doctor.

For weight loss, most physicians recommend a comprehensive approach including a healthy diet and good nutrition, regular physical activity, and behavioral change, with an emphasis on long-term weight management, rather than short-term extreme weight reduction.

What Could Have Been Done To Avoid The Current Situation?
The dangers of ephedra have been known for over a decade, yet have been largely ignored by the supplement companies. Warning labels and an honest presentation of the risks and benefits of these products could have prevented injury and death.

What Is Ephedra And What Is It Used For?
Ephedra, also known as Ma-Huang, is the herbal form of ephedrine and is a central nervous system stimulant that behaves in the body much like an amphetamine. In other words, ephedra is speed. This herbal supplement is used to help people lose weight, boost their energy levels and improve athletic performance. Ephedra is a natural herbal substance. It is also a very powerful drug so powerful that some companies market pills containing ephedra as a "safe alternative to street drugs" like ecstasy and amphetamines. Ephedra alkaloids pseudoephedrine, norephedrine, and N-methylephedrine are used in Sudafed and other over-the-counter medications.
