Regarding Avandia, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has informed consumers recently of new restrictions to the use and administration of rosiglitazone-containing medicines. These medicines which typically are prescribed to treat type II diabetes are sold under the brand names Avandia, Avandamet, and Avandaryl.

An FDA panel meeting to discuss the safety of the drug Avandia, declared that the drug be either be withdrawn or have Avandia sales severely curtailed. This action on fhe part of the FDA was taken due in large part to the drug's significant risk factors of heart attack, stroke and other potentially serious cardiac issues. These health risks have led to the filing of hundreds of Avandia lawsuits.

SHOOP | A PROFESSIONAL LAW CORPORATION is further investigating potentil cases wherein diabetics taking either Avandia or Actos have suffered bone fractures. Both post-menopausal women and men taking the drugs in combination with certain diuretic drugs are additionally at risk for these various bone fracture injuries.

The drug Avandia (generic - rosiglitazone) has been linked to literally hundreds of deaths during the latter portion of 2009. While Avandia can help diabetic users gain better control of their blood sugar levels, it has been linked to an increased risk of heart attacks, bone fractures and eye/vision problems.

The FDA's findings will be presented to a panel of experts who will advise the agency as to whether Avandia is dangerous enough to warrant withdrawal from the market. Many have criticized GlaxoSmithKline's study of Avandia stating that it was too short to prove any hypotheses.

David Shoop and Don Liddy represent individuals nationally who have suffered injury as a result of defective medical devices and prescription drugs. If you have suffered personal injury as a result of your use or interaction with a defective product (a product with a defective design, a product with manufacturing defects or defective warnings), you need experienced legal counsel with proven experience in product liability matters.
