How long has the drugmaker AstraZeneca known about the risk of heart failure from Onglyza?
The major research study providing insight on the Onglyza heart failure risk was published in 2013. The company has only made plans to add a heart disease warning to the Onglyza product label when required to do so in April of 2016.
Who is most at risk for Onglyza heart attack?
Anyone who is taking Onglyza may be at risk for developing heart failure. A study known as SAVOR-TIMI, published in the New England Journal of Medicine in 2013, revealed that diabetic patients taking Onglyza face a risk of hospitalization for heart failure that is 1.27 times higher than that of their counterparts not taking Onglyza. In addition, the Onglyza heart failure study found that patients taking the drug had elevated levels of natriuretic peptides, which is an indicator for heart failure.
What are the signs and symptoms of Onglyza heart disease?
Onglyza heart failure signs include shortness of breath, tiredness, fatigue, weakness, trouble breathing while lying down, heart palpitations, faster heartbeat than normal, dizziness, faintness, lightheadedness, and weight gain with swelling in the ankles, feet, legs, or stomach.
Aren't most drug and products liability lawsuits just class action lawsuits where the plaintiff receives very little money?
The majority of our drug cases are handled as a MDL, or Multi-District Litigation, where each plaintiff receives a settlement based upon the individual injuries and damages incurred by each plaintiff.
We're not the type of people who sue; do we really need to file a lawsuit?
If a member of your family suffered a serious injury or health problem as a result of a defective product or dangerous drug, long-term, or even life-long, medical care may be required. This could be incredibly expensive and since medical costs are continually rising may be largely unknown at the time of settlement or trial. If a member of your family died due to a defective product or dangerous drug, no amount of money can undo that wrong. It is our fervent hope that every defective products, drug or other medication lawsuit we file can serve to make the manufacturer take note of the loss and pain its product has caused. When that fails to make a company take action in the form of a product recall, greater warnings about its use and ultimately making safer products, we rely on their profit motivation to make them do the right thing. Unfortunately, in all too many cases it is only the fear of lawsuits and large settlements and verdicts that makes a company become a better corporate citizen.
How much time do I have to file an Onglyza lawsuit?
Most states have Onglyza lawsuit time limits; however, the majority of all persons having taken Onglyza for diabetes will fall within those time limits if they contact an attorney in the near future. For specific time limits for your claim, please fill out the form at right and one of our attorneys will contact you as quickly as possible, usually within the hour.
