"Our clients are in walkers, they're in wheelchairs, places they never thought they would be," an attorney for the plaintiffs told the news provider. "We have three clients that have passed away since we started litigating."
According to the news source, Proctor & Gamble's Fixodent is not the only denture adhesive to have been the subject of a zinc- poisoning lawsuit, as the attorney also previously filed a complaint against GlaxoSmithKline, the makers of SuperPoligrip.
The attorney told the news source that he hopes the latest action taken against Proctor & Gamble will prevent the inclusion of zinc in Fixodent in the future.
According to ABC News, the potential link between zinc poisoning and denture adhesives was first discovered by researchers at the University of Texas approximately five years ago.

I have been sick since November with numerous sinus infections and other health issues. No health professional could find a cause. I finally realized that was when I started using fixodent. I stopped, and my symptoms are decreasing.

I have been worn dentures about 30 years. I have used poligrip and all the products. I have had numerous health issues similiar to the probles mentioned. I did not know anything about the class actions. I found out about this December 2014. Is it too late too do anything about it?

I have been using fixodent for over ten years. I called the other day to complain about my fixodent not holding. I told them I was applying it at least 4-6 times day!! It wasn't until I called that I learned that fixodent was formulated for only one time a day application. The woman was very concerned and asked if I had symptoms. When I asked her what the symptoms were, she did not tell me. I researched it and I have been having symptoms for quite a while. I have neuropathy in upper and lower extremities. Also I have been to the ER because my legs seemed to turn to jelly and I fell more than once or twice. I usually have multiple tubes of fixodent around just b to make sure I'm not w/o it. I sometimes go through a tube or more a month.
