It ought to be. I am so sick and tired of these people who think they are above the law....and become so greedy they turn green. My sister was on this drug, but never even filed for a claim in the settlement....and should have.

Heck that is how the world is today.. My favorite is this.. The side effect of Tylonol is headache.. lol OMG they give drugs for everything, and most of the time they do so without the long drug test to see what the long term effects of the drugs are.. But your sister should have got her some money for it..

That is so true Brian. The less drugs you take the better off you will be. I take Thyroid med and that's it. I can't imagine taking 8,9,10 different kind of pills a day. If I get that bad off, just put me 6 feet under.
As for my sister....yes, she should have signed up for it as she did have some not so good effects from the Fen-phen. The was a class action law suit on Synthroid several years ago I signed up for. Got back 75.00, but better than nothing.
