Avandia is a drug designed to treat type-2 diabetes. It was released by GlaxoSmithKline in 1999. Unfortunately, many people who have taken Avandia have suffered serious, life-threatening side effects, including heart attack, stroke and even wrongful death.
If you or someone close to you has suffered from using Avandia, you may be able to obtain compensation for the losses you have suffered, including medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering. The experienced attorneys at Gatti, Keltner, Bienvenu & Montesi, PLC, can help you explore your legal options and pursue justice and compensation for the losses you have suffered.
Side Effects from Avandia
At the time it was released, Avandia (rosiglitazone) was thought to be an improvement upon existing diabetes drugs. Unfortunately, evidence suggests Avandia can lead to:
- Excessive weight gain
- Liver toxicity
- High cholesterol
- Heart murmurs
- Heart attack
- Congestive heart failure
- Wrongful death
Patients with underlying heart problems are especially prone to suffering Avandia side effects. Our attorneys are skilled litigators with extensive experience handling pharmaceutical liability cases. We will work to determine whether or not use of Avandia contributed to your injury and help you explore all potential sources of compensation.
