Avandia

Navigation:  Home > Class Action Law > Avandia

 

Avandia is used by people with Type II diabetes, to keep down blood sugar levels. Side effects include cold-like symptoms, headaches, tiredness, weight gain, swelling, and risk of serious heart problems

Avandia lawsuits have resulted because of the serious Avandia side effects and because Avandia manufacturer minimized the risks associated with Avandia. In particular, the FDA warned Avandia manufacturer of the “oral representations denying the existence of serious new risks associated with Avandia at GSK’s promotional exhibit booth” in September 2001.

When Avandia was approved the FDA stated they were not confident of its safety regarding liver toxicity, just that Avandia appeared to be safer than Rezulin, a factor that Avandia lawsuits may point out. If you have experienced severe side effects due to this medication, seek an attorney, or find a firm devoted to class actions against Avandia.
