Avandia is the brand name for the drug rosiglitazone. This drug is used to treat Type 2 diabetes. GlazoSmithKline makes and sells this drug which has been linked to a 43 percent greater risk of heart attack and death when compared to other diabetes drugs or when no drugs have been taken at all in the May 2007 edition of the New England Journal of Medicine.
Avandia is believed to cause hundreds of heart attacks and other related heart failures each month. In fact, the FDA has required Avandia to be sold with a "black box" warning since November 2007. Our Avandia heart attack lawyers are investigating victims claims now as reports continue to come in regarding an increased risk of heart attack from using Avandia.
If you or someone in your family has suffered a serious injury or death after being prescribed Avandia, you may be entitled to file a lawsuit and receive compensation. Please contact us toll free at 1-800-872-5925 to speak with our office regarding your case.
