43% Greater Risk of Heart Attack

Avandia is a trade name for the drug rosiglitazone. Avandia was taken off the market in the United States in 2011, and recently has been released again. The recall was lifted by the FDA when it concluded that Avandia was safe for use. This does not mean that it is safe for all patients, and if you or a loved one suffered serious side effects from Avandia, whether prior to the recall in 2011 or after the drug was again released onto the market, a Modesto dangerous drug attorney from the firm should evaluate your case on an immediate basis.

Prior to the recall in 2011, the Journal of the American Medical Association reported that there was a 43% greater chance that a patient would have a heart attack if taking Avandia. There is evidence that suggests up to 100,000 heart attacks were caused by use of Avandia. Although the FDA claims it is now safe to use, they still admit there is still "some scientific uncertainty about the cardiovascular safety" of Avandia. For this reason, you should understand your rights if you are a victim of injury caused by this drug.
