The U.S. Food & Drug Adminsitration (FDA) is currently reviewing the safety data of Avandia and related studies in order to determine whether an Avandia recall will be issued.
Please note, Schmidt & Clark, LLP is no longer accepting Avandia claims. If you feel that you may have a potential case, we urge you to locate another law firm adequately suited to handle your claim.
*** Avandia® Labeling Update 2/4/11: The FDA has notified healthcare professionals and patients that information on the cardiovascular risks (including heart attack) of Avandia (rosiglitazone) has been added to the physician labeling and patient Medication Guide. Additionally, the drug labels have been revised to state that rosiglitazone and rosiglitazone-containing medicines should only be used:
- In patients already being treated with these medicines
- In patients whose blood sugar cannot be controlled with other anti-diabetic medicines and who, after consulting with their healthcare professional, do not wish to use pioglitazone-containing medicines (Actos, Actoplus Met, Actoplus Met XR, or Duetact).
