Tennessee Onglyza Lawsuits

What is Onglyza?

Our firm is exploring Tennessee Onglyza lawsuits.

Onglyza is an AstraZeneca prescription medication that regulates blood sugar levels in patients with type 2 diabetes. Ideally, Onglyza works to stabilize and support the insulin levels of the diabetic patients who rely upon it, preventing serious complications and improving the patients’ quality of life. Unfortunately, the effects of Onglyza aren’t always so positive. Recent concerns about Onglyza’s unintended, serious side effects have led to negligence and personal injury lawsuits, and have reached the attention of the FDA.

What are the dangers of using Onglyza?

In 2014 and 2016, the FDA released safety warnings to alert the public that drugs such as Onglyza may lead to an increased risk of heart failure, and required AstraZeneca to place a warning label on Onglyza to place patients on notice of its potential harms. While the cause of Onglyza’s contribution to heart failure is yet unknown, the FDA warns that the risk is especially high in patients with preexisting kidney or heart disease. The FDA lists several symptoms associated with Onglyza and underlying heart trouble, including:

  • Unusual shortness of breath during daily activities
  • Trouble breathing when lying down
  • Tiredness, weakness, or fatigue
  • Weight gain
  • Swelling in the ankles, feet, legs, or stomach

If you or a loved one have suffered such symptoms while taking Onglyza, alert your doctor, and know that you may have grounds for a Tennessee Onglyza lawsuit.  Call the medical device lawyers and Nashville personal injury lawyers at David Randolph Smith & Associates for more information.
