Contacting an Avandia Lawyer

Jan 9, 2008
If you or a loved one have a history of Type II diabetes and recently visited a doctor for an Avandia diagnosis, there is a chance that you will contract or have already contracted one or more of the harmful side effects of this drug.

You are advised, in this case, to consult your healthcare provider for alternative treatments. Because your harmful side effects are the responsibility of the drug's manufacturer, you also have every right to an Avandia lawyer. You may have been one of an estimated 1 million patients who contributed to Avandia's success as a diabetes drug in 2006, when it generated about $3 billion worldwide. An estimated 6 million people are now using the drug.

Avandia, though approved by the Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of diabetes as recently as 1999, already began to raise health concerns by the next year because a trend of cardiovascular deaths was in development.

The FDA now seeks to make the controversial move of giving Avandia a new black box heart attack warning. You might be able to find an Avandia lawyer near you who will take the FDA to court and hold it accountable for any actions it has taken that led directly to your condition. But it is more practical that you focus on prosecuting the manufacturer of Avandia, as it bears the most responsibility for the negligence of your health needs.

You will have a better chance of being fully compensated for any prescription drugs that do not do what is intended as long as you file a claim in a timely manner. Therefore, you should not hesitate to find an Avandia lawyer who has both the experience and the education (specializing in the required field) to let you know your rights, answer any questions you have, and fight effectively for your compensation. Be sure to provide all necessary evidence to an Avandia lawyer to prove that the side effects were known well ahead of time but purposely concealed.

Avandia symptoms you can look for include but, especially due to your diabetes, are not limited to the following: heart failure, rapid heartbeat, pulmonary edema, pleural effusion, anemia, swelling, inexplicable rapid weight gain, breathing problems, unusual fatigue, dark urine, yellowing eyes/skin, persistent nausea/vomiting, pain in the abdominal area, worsened hyper- or hypoglycemia, new or worsening macular edema, or seeing problems. Allergic reactions include rash, itching, swelling, dizziness, and breathing problems.

An Avandia lawyer will work for you to give you compensation for your pain and suffering. Call an expert Avandia lawyer today.
