Avandia® Injury and Lawsuit Information
Avandia® has been linked to some serious, life-threatening injuries. The most dangerous of which are heart related and include heart attacks and congestive heart failure. Due to the potential cardiac risk, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) held a meeting earlier this year to determine whether the drug should be pulled from the U.S. market.
The panel was split in a decision to pull the Type 2 diabetes drug from the market. While some of the members voted to ban the medication, others argued that stronger warnings and restrictions would be sufficient. Despite data that connects Avandia® to a potential increase in the risk of heart attack and cardiac death, the FDA decided to keep the drug on the market. The agency has tightened the restrictions, making the medication available only to patients who cannot be treated with other medications.
