We are investigating the link between Vinca (otherwise known as periwinkle) extract and serious fetal injuries.

The FDA recently posted a "warning for women of childbearing age" regarding this dietary supplement, in which serious and severe side effects were noted in animal testing. The FDA warns that "vinpocetine may cause a miscarriage or harm fetal development." Further, "is a synthetically produced compound that is used in some products marketed as dietary supplements, either by itself or combined with other ingredients. Vinpocetine may be referred to on product labels as Vinca minor extract, lesser periwinkle extract, or common periwinkle extract. Dietary supplements containing vinpocetine are often marketed for uses that include enhanced memory, focus, or mental acuity; increased energy; and weight loss. Scientists who have studied the effects of vinpocetine on pregnant animals concluded that vinpocetine decreased fetal weight and increased the chances of a miscarriage." If you have taken such a supplement and suffered complications with your pregnancy or your fetus was injured, you may wish to consult with an attorney.


Gansen Law Group is experienced at handling cases involving these types of adverse drug reactions. Working with another firm, we were involved in obtaining a $48.2 million verdict in 2011.
