Alleged Onglyza Side Effects

Onglyza (saxagliptin) is a diabetes drug developed jointly by AstraZeneca and Bristol-Myers Squibb, and approved by the FDA in 2009 to help control blood sugar levels in adults with Type 2 diabetes. Onglyza belongs to a class of diabetes medications called incretin mimetics, which work by copying, or mimicking, the functions of the natural incretin hormones in the body that help lower blood sugar levels. However, a growing number of studies have sought to examine the possible health risks of Onglyza treatment, indicating that Type 2 diabetes patients taking Onglyza may face a higher-than-expected risk of severe complications like congestive heart failure, pancreatic cancer, cardiac arrest and pancreatitis.

In response to research detailing the alleged risk of side effects from Onglyza, an FDA panel voted 14-1 in April to require more stringent warnings on the Onglyza drug label, regarding the increased risk of hospitalization and all-cause mortality among patients taking the Type 2 diabetes medication. The FDA panel’s vote was likely influenced by the results of a clinical trial involving more than 16,000 participants with diabetes, which indicated that patients taking Onglyza faced a 27% increased risk of hospitalization due to heart failure. If you took Onglyza, and you have since suffered conestive heart failure or another serious medical complication, contact a knowledgeable Onglyza injury lawyer today for legal help.
