DIABETES DRUG AVANDIA
Avandia (generic rosiglitazone) is a medication prescribed to treat Type 2 diabetes. It was approved on May 25, 1999, and has been used by over 6 million people worldwide. Research indicates that users of the drug face an increased risk of heart attacks, congestive heart failure, bone fractures, liver failure, macular edema and cardiovascular related death.

The manufacturer of Avandia, GlaxoSmithKline PLC, failed to warn consumers or adequately disclose the risks of serious and potentially fatal injuries. Experts have suggested that as many as 200,000 heart attacks could have been caused by Avandia, and many of those could have been prevented if proper warnings were provided.
In 2006, Avandia sales were over $2.2 billion in the United States, and many believe the manufacturer failed to disclose the heart attack risks out of fear that it would negatively impact sales. Since information regarding the Avandia heart risk was reported in the New England Journal of Medicine on May 21, 2007, GlaxoSmithKline has seen sales fall substantially. The FDA has required that a prominently displayed ‘black box’ warning be added to the drug indicating an increased risk of congestive heart failure and heart attacks.
