If you or a loved one used Poligrip denture adhesive cream and suffered neurological damage such as neuropathy, contact a lawyer!
A team of class action attorneys and personal injury lawyers has launched an investigation into Poligrip, the popular over-the-counter denture cream sold by GlaxoSmithKline, which may be linked to zinc toxicity, copper depletion, and severe neurological damage, such as neuropathy.
Poligrip contains zinc to act as a bonding agent and to block odor. Excessive zinc consumption (known as hyperzincemia) can lead to copper depletion (known as hypocupremia), which can cause neurological damage such as neuropathy. An August 2008 study published in the medical journal Neurology reported on patients who were diagnosed with neuropathy and had suffered from zinc poisoning linked to their use of denture cream.
Polygrip denture cream products include Poligrip Original, Super Poligrip Ultra Fresh, Poligrip Extra Care, Super Poligrip Free, Extra Strength Super Poligrip Powder and Super Poligrip Comfort Seal Strips.
Symptoms of zinc poisoning neuropathy include balance problems, numbness, tingling or weakness in the hands or feet (pins and needles sensation), decreased walking stride or difficulty walking, unexplained pain or loss of sensation, lack of coordination, paralysis and/or loss of sensation.
If you or your loved ones have ever taken Poligrip and have suffered from any symptoms of zinc poisoning neuropathy potentially associated with the use of Poligrip, you may be entitled to money.**
**If you have used Poligrip and suffer from any of the Polygrip side effects, we urge you to promptly consult your doctor or physician for an evaluation.
