Fleet Phospho-Soda lawyers are products liability attorneys who are dedicated to aggressively standing up for the rights of patients who have been injured by the over-the-counter (OTC) bowel cleanser Fleet Phospho-Soda. Fleet Phospho-Soda (also marketed as Fleet EZ-Prep) is an oral sodium phosphate (OSP) medication suggested for use prior to some surgeries or before a colonoscopy. Fleet Phospho-Soda has been reported to cause a number of serious side effects, including:
- Acute phosphate nephropathy (APN), kidney damage that may necessitate a lifelong need for dialysis
- Heart arrhythmia
- Rectal bleeding, sores or ulcers
- Kideney failure
- Severe allergic reaction
- Severe dehydration
Such debilitating side effects are most likely to occur in patients older than 55, as well as those who are dehydrated, have a history of kidney disease, and/or are suffering from active colitis or bowel obstruction.
Reports of these side effects caused the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to announce in December 2005 that it was urging C.B. Fleet Company to stop selling Fleet Phospho-Soda. Additionally, the FDA ordered the drug maker to include “Black Box” warnings on its prescription version of the drug (known as OsmoPrep). Just after this public alert, the C.B. Fleet Company voluntarily recalled OTC Fleet Phospho-Soda from the U.S. market.
