Our Missouri Drug Recall Attorneys are accepting cases where people took Avandia, a drug used in combination with insulin for the treatment of adult-onset or type 2 diabetes, and suffered a heart attack. Numerous studies show Avandia may not be safe and may qualify as a defective product under Missouri law.
Avandia increases the risk of heart attack, liver failure, osteoporosis and has other life threatening side effects. It is important to speak with an experienced St. Louis Defective Drug Lawyer immediately if you have experienced any of these symptoms.
The most common, and potentially deadly, side effect of Avandia is heart attack or heart failure. The analysis of 42 studies, involving 14,000 patients, has found those taking Avandia to be 43% more likely to suffer a heart attack. These findings were published in the New England Journal of Medicine in 2007. Patients taking Avandia who suffered a heart attack experienced symptoms of weight gain, shortness of breath, high blood pressure, and swollen extremities.
A rare, but equally as hazardous, side effect of Avandia is liver failure. Numerous patients died or required a liver transplant due to Avandia’s effect on liver function. Patients who experienced liver failure due to Avandia often experienced symptoms such as yellowing of the skin (jaundice), nausea, stomach pain and fatigue. It is crucial for patients taking Avandia to closely monitor liver enzymes.
If you, or someone you love, suffered from side effects of Avandia it is important to speak with an experienced attorney in defective drug litigation. E.
