Avandia (rosiglitazone) is a drug prescribed to Type II diabetes patients to help control their blood-sugar levels. Millions of people have used Avandia, an oral diabetes treatment that unfortunately is linked to a higher risk of heart attacks.
Other Avandia side effects include:
- Heart disease
- Bone fractures
- Eye damage
- Hepatotoxicity (liver damage)
Researchers linked Avandia to a 64 percent increased risk of dying from cardiovascular causes. There were 86 heart attacks and 39 deaths among the 15,560 Avandia patients, compared with 72 heart attacks and 22 deaths among the 12,283 patients not taking Avandia.
