July 22, 2010
With all the controversy about Avandia drug injuries and recalls, the FDA’s ruling on the drug may come as a surprise to some.
According to HealthDay News, after a trial of Avandia and the charges about the drug’s increased risk for heart disease, the FDA panel voted to keep the drug on the market.
However, the FDA did agree that the drug should receive new packaging, warning patients of the risk for Avandia drug injuries.
The drug came under fire when patients reported heart disease, stroke, and heart attacks associated with use of Avandia.
