Onglyza And Kombiglyze XR
Onglyza and Kombiglyze XR (also called saxagliptin) was approved by the FDA in 2009 to treat Type 2 Diabetes, but since it’s release there have been signs that this may not be the only thing it does. These medications have been linked to an increased risk in heart failure, pancreatitis, and even cancer. Despite this and close scrutiny from the FDA, some of these risks have yet to be acknowledged. Here is some information courtesy of the the Eshelman Legal Group.
Saxagliptin is labeled as an incretin mimetic, meaning that it mimics incretin in your body which prompts the pancreas to release insulin. Incretin mimetics are still fairly new so there may still be issues with them. Since it’s release an FDA warning was issued over the possibility of pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer. Since then the risk for pancreatitis has been added to warning labels for both Onglyza and Kombiglyze XR, but the risk for pancreatic cancer still had yet to be addressed. Also, an even more recent review is being held for the possibility of heart failure. This was issued in 2014 and also has yet to be added to warning labels. If either of these risks prove true, the FDA may go as far as to call for a total recall of the drugs. Do you believe it is acceptable for risks like these to go ignored?
