"Recent reports point to GlaxoSmithKline long being aware of Avandia’s cardiac risks. In 2007, a Cleveland Clinic study conducted by prominent cardiologist Dr. Steven Nissen and published in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) found that patients taking the diabetes drug experienced a 43-percent higher risk of suffering a heart attack. Many called for Avandia’s recall, but as Wall Street Journal (WSJ) reports today, Glaxo argued against the findings. Now, some details of Glaxo’s behind-the-scenes Avandia cover-ups are being made public."

That one shows how Avandia is even more dangerous than Actos (by about 15%).

A friend of mine recently had a heart attack due to his medication, but luckily HE survived. Unfortunately a lot of people don't. His wife sent me this link: www.medrecallnews.us/Avandia It has some info about the recall and black-box FDA warnings.

My doctor took me off Avandia because of the possibility of cardiac problems. I am currently seeing a cardiologist 3 times a year because of the increased risk. He does have me on Actos.

This is why I quit Avandia, too.
