Our law firm is investigating injuries related to the increased risk of heart failure caused by the diabetes drugs Onglyza and Kombiglyze XR. These drugs have caused major health problems and injuries in thousands of patients. If you or a loved one has been harmed after the use of one of these drugs, please contact Montgomery & Ponder, LLC at (205) 377-5004.
Lawsuits have been filed around the country against Bristol-Myers Squibb Company, AstraZeneca-Pharmaceuticals and McKesson Corporation over the companies’ alleged failure to warn consumers and the medical community of the risk of heart failure for diabetes patients using Onglyza and Kombiglyze XR.
Despite the drug’s approval, the FDA recently issued a safety alert concerning Onglyza and its sister medication, Kombiglyze, calling on the drugs’ manufacturer to include a warning in prescribing information. Some are even calling for the drug’s removal from the US market.
There has been ongoing concern for Onglyza since a 2013 study showed similar medications could have a link to higher than normal rates of pancreatic cancer in users. You should contact your doctor right away if you have any symptoms that could be linked to pancreas health, including severe stomach/abdominal pain which may spread to the back, and or nausea or vomiting that doesn’t stop.
If you or someone you love have experienced heart failure, congestive heart failure, cardiac failure or death while taking Onglyza or Kombiglyze XR, compensation may be available from the drug manufacturer. Contact us today for a free consultation at (205) 377-5004.
