Onglyza Saxagliptin and Alogliptin Lawsuit

Onlyza and the other medications listed in the class below containing Saxagliptin and Alogliptin are known as Incretin mimetics. These drugs are agents that act like incretin hormones such as glucagon-likepeptide-1 (GLP-1). They bind to GLP-1 receptors and stimulate glucose dependent insulin release, therefore act as antihyperglycemics. Incretin mimetics also suppress appetite and inhibit glucagon secretion.
Brands of Saxagliptin and Alogliptin Drugs:
A U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) safety review has found that type 2 diabetes medicines containing saxagliptin and alogliptin may increase the risk of heart failure, particularly in patients who already have heart or kidney disease. Heart failure can result in the heart not being able to pump enough blood to meet the body’s needs. As a result, we are adding new warnings to the drug labels about this safety issue.

Fluoroquinolone Antibiotics Lawsuit
In June of 2016 United States Food and Drug Administration published an advisory related to Fluroquinolone antibiotics including Levaquin, Cipro and Avelox. The FDA advisory included warnings of serious health conditions related to these drugs.
“The Food and Drug Administration is advising that the serious side effects associated with fluoroquinolone antibacterial drugs generally outweigh the benefits for patients with acute sinusitis, acute bronchitis, and uncomplicated urinary tract infections who have other treatment options. For patients with these conditions, fluoroquinolones should be reserved for those who do not have alternative treatment options. An FDA safety review has shown that fluoroquinolones when used systemically (i.e. tablets, capsules, and injectable) are associated with disabling and potentially permanent serious side effects that can occur together. These side effects can involve the tendons, muscles, joints, nerves, and central nervous system.
