SlimQuick Liver Failure Lawyers

Have you used a SlimQuick weight loss product and suffered from liver toxicity, hepatitis, liver failure or any other liver problem? The defective drug lawyers at Parker Waichman LLP are investigating possible liver injuries that may be associated with SlimQuick and SlimQuick Razor weight loss supplements. Though SlimQuick weight loss supplement products do not include label warnings regarding liver injury, the labels do describe the symptoms of liver failure - nausea, abdominal pain, dark urine or jaundice - as possible side effects.

Our SlimQuick liver injury lawyers would like to hear from anyone who suffered liver failure, drug induced hepatitis or other liver problems while taking:

  • SlimQuick Fat Burner
  • SlimQuick Caffeine Free
  • SlimQuick Razor

Women injured by SlimQuick supplements may be able to file a SlimQuick liver injury lawsuit seeking compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages from the marketers of this product. To learn more about the possible legal remedies open to you, we urge you to contact one of our SlimQuick liver injury lawyers today.

SlimQuick and Liver Injuries

SlimQuick is a weight loss supplement marketed to woman which claims to contain a combination of six weight-loss complexes that assist with fat reduction, slow metabolisms, low energy levels, toxins in the body, poor digestion, high stress and regular bowel movements. SlimQuick is available in pill and powder forms, and is sold as "SlimQuick Fat Burner, "SlimQuick Caffeine Free" and "SlimQuick Razor."

It has recently come to our firm's attention that SlimQuick weight loss supplements contain uva urvi (Arctostaphylos uva ursi, also known as Bearberry), an herbal ingredient that could pose a danger to the liver. Uva ursi contains a chemical called hydroquinone that is toxic to the liver and could damage the organ if taken in high doses. Taking a dose of hydroquinone that is greater than 5 grams has been linked to death from liver toxicity. Numerous websites that discuss uva ursi warn that people using this herbal supplement should be under the care of a doctor and carefully follow dosage instructions because of its association with liver toxicity. Most sites also warn that it should not be used for more than five days and for no more than five times in one year (SlimQuick claims the weightloss supplement can be used for up to 16 weeks). Uva ursi also should not be taken by people with liver or kidney problems.

The labels for SlimQuick weight loss supplements do not contain any specific warning for liver toxicity, drug induced hepatitis or liver failure. However, the labels do warn that SlimQuick should not be used by people with liver or kidney disorders. The SlimQuick label also advises users to stop taking the supplement and inform a doctor immediately if they experience a number of serious symptoms, including a few that can be indicative of liver failure, including nausea, abdominal pain, dark urine, or jaundice.

Liver Problems Possibly Linked to SlimQuick

The liver is an organ that is located in the upper right hand side of the abdomen, mostly behind the rib cage. The liver helps purify the blood by changing potentially harmful chemicals into harmless ones. The SlimQuick liver injury lawyers at Parker Waichman LLP are currently investigating the following liver injuries and disorders that may be associated with use of SlimQuick weight loss products:

Drug Induced Liver Toxicity, or Hepatotoxicity: Symptoms of liver toxicity that might be linked to the use of SlimQuick include:

  • Fatigue
  • Weakness
  • Vague abdominal pain
  • Loss of appetite
  • Jaundice
  • Itching
  • Unexplained bruising

Drug Induced Hepatitis, or Toxic Hepatitis: QuickSlim users who experience the following symptoms may be suffering from drug induced hepatitis:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Dark urine
  • Diarrhea
  • Fatigue
  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Jaundice
  • Loss of appetite
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Rash
  • White or clay-colored stools

Liver Failure: Symptoms of serious liver failure may include:

  • Nausea
  • Loss of appetite
  • Fatigue
  • Diarrhea
  • Jaundice
  • Bleeding easily
  • Swollen abdomen
  • Mental disorientation or confusion (known as hepatic encephalopathy)
  • Sleepiness
  • Coma

If you or someone you care about experiences any of the signs or symptoms of liver injury while taking a SlimQuick product, use of the supplement should be stopped, and medical treatment should be sought immediately.
