On May 21, 2007 the FDA released a warning concerning the type 2 diabetes drug Avandia. The FDA warned that clinical trials revealed patients using Avandia have shown an increased risk for heart attack and heart-related deaths. The FDA went on to warn that Avandia patients using Avandia for a short period, 6 months or less, may increase their risk of heart attack and other heart related events by 30-40 percent. If you or someone you know experienced a heart attack or other heart related problems while taking Avandia, contact an attorney immediately. You may be able to take legal action against the manufacturer of Avandia, GlaxoSmithKline.
