FDA to Review Avandia®
A Food and Drug Administration advisory committee is set to discuss the safety of the GlaxoSmithKline drug, Avandia, in mid-July. Avandia, used to treat Type 2 diabetes, has been associated with an increased incidence of heart attacks and strokes, sometimes leading to death. Two studies issued on Monday, June 28, have confirmed that association. The first study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association compared the side-effects of Avandia and another diabetes drug while the second study, authored by Steve Nissen of the Cleveland Clinic and published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, updated his previous work and also confirmed his previous finding that there was an association between Avandia and adverse cardiac events. Documents released by leaders of the Senate Finance Committee earlier this year revealed that if patients are taken off Avandia and placed on another drug that more than 500 heart attacks and 300 cases of heart failure per month may be avoided.
If you are a Type 2 diabetes patient and are currently taking Avandia you should consult a physician. The FDA recommends that patients do not stop taking medication on their own. If you have taken or are currently taking Avandia and have suffered heart failure, a heart attack or stroke, you may have legal rights and should contact Tad Thomas Attorney-at-Law. Mr. Thomas has experience litigating against large drug companies and is willing to discuss your case.
