Information About Avandia and Januvia

Some of the most common pharmaceutical injuries involve Avandia and Januvia. Avandia is a diabetes drug. The government has been linking this drug to heart attacks and heart failure. Because of the negligence of the drug manufacturer, thousands of individuals can suffer heart attacks and other health issues that could have been avoided if it was not for the wrongdoing of the manufacturer. Even though there was early evidence of increased risk for cardiac issues, it was still issued and caused health problems for many individuals. If you or a loved one has suffered heart attack or failure because of Avandia, discuss your case with a Manhattan personal injury lawyer.

Another type of diabetes drug, Januvia, has caused many users health problems. The FDA issued a warning against the use of Januvia, stating that it can result in an increased chance of acute pancreatic necrosis.
