FDA panel urges to keep Controversial Diabetes Drug “Avandia” on the market

By  

Federal health experts are recommending changes to safety restrictions on the controversial diabetes pill Avandia, in light of a new analysis suggesting that the drug may not increase the risk of heart attack as much as previously thought.

The FDA has been reconsidering its approval of Avandia, which was the world’s No. 1 diabetes drug until research showed it could raise the risk of heart attacks and other heart dangers. Since then, its use has been heavily restricted and prescriptions have plummeted, and the FDA wanted to know if it was worth even keeping the drug on the market. (source)

Thirteen members of a 26-memberFood and Drug Administrationadvisory committee voted to soften the restrictions on the drug, Avandia, which has gone from being one of the industry’s biggest blockbusters to a marginalized drug used by a few thousand people. (source)
