Pacerone is a powerful anti-arrhythmic drug that is extremely toxic in many parts of the body. The most serious risks include pulmonary toxicity, liver disease, blindness, worsening irregular heart rhythm, and death.

If you or a loved one was diagnosed with a severe side effect, you should contact our lawyers immediately. You may be entitled to compensation by filing a lawsuit.
Pacerone contains amiodarone, a medication that helps control severe irregular heart rhythm. It was only intended as a drug of “last-resort,” but has increasingly become a first-line treatment for common heart diseases.
The problem is that Pacerone frequently causes severe side effects. Between 15-50% of patients develop side effects, and 20% must stop taking it due to side effects.
FDA Warning: Pulmonary Toxicity
The FDA has issued warnings about pulmonary toxicity, which occurs in up to 17% of patients. About 10% of patients who develop lung disease die from it. Pulmonary toxicity can scar the lungs and cause wheezing, shortness of breath, and death.
Vision Loss and Blindness
Vision problems are another common side effect. Studies estimated that 2% of patients will develop vision loss. Of these patients, around 20% go legally blind in at least one eye. Furthermore, around 90% of patients develop corneal deposits, which causes 2-5% of patients to see “halos” around bright lights.
What is the problem?
The Clark Firm, LLP is nationally recognized as a class action law firm in Texas. However, our lawyers are not filing a Pacerone class action. Instead, we are filing individual lawsuits on behalf of people who experienced severe side effects, such as:
- Lung damage
- Pulmonary toxicity
- Liver disease
- Severe irregular heart rhythm
About Class Actions
Class action lawsuits are often the most efficient way for a large group of people to seek refunds. The lawsuit is filed on behalf of everyone who bought a defective product. If compensation is awarded, it is divided and shared equally among everyone in the lawsuit.
Why Our Law Firm is Filing Individual Lawsuits as Opposed to a Class Action
There can be disadvantages to joining a class action, especially for people with very serious injuries. Members may have to accept a “low-ball” settlement or higher attorneys’ fees.
Our lawyers specialize in filing individual lawsuits against companies who sell dangerous products. If you were injured by Pacerone, we may be able to help you seek compensation for pain and suffering, medical expenses, and more.
