Avandia the diabetes drug is showing lethal side effects that the company is strongly suspected of knowing about and not informing patients.
GlaxoSmithKline finds itself defending its product Avandia following a recent U.S. Senate report citing an FDA estimate that Avandia resulted in 83,000 heart attacks between 1999 and 2007. (That is slightly more people than in all of Canton MI -that's right - a heart attack for all between Michigan Ave and Joy and Ridge Rd and Lotz.)
In 2007, Dr. Steven Nissen published a study showing that those taking Avandia had a 43 percent higher risk of having a heart attack and a 64 percent greater chance of dying from a heart attack than those not taking the drug.
The Senate report cites GSK for their failure in that they "had a duty to sufficiently warn patients in a timely manner." The report indicates that not only did they fail to notify the public in a timely manner of the drug's risks, but that the company tried to downplay the potential risks.
Folks, every time you see or hear on a commercial the "side effects" of a medication those things happened to real people during the usage of that toxin. Think carefully before taking medication. Choose natural solutions!
Yours in Health,
