Byetta® Attorneys Jacksonville
FDA Recall, Warning or Action: The FDA warns of possible kidney function problems, including kidney failure in some patients taking Byetta® for Type 2 diabetes.
When a manufacturer’s desire to take a product to market is diluted by their needs for profits, a patient’s well-being may be wrongfully put at risk. Often the fault comes from the manufacturer’s failure to identify contraindicated conditions, provide thorough directions for medical providers or to inform patients of side effects documented during testing. Unjustifiably, there are incidences where a manufacturer simply elects not to tell patients that a known problem has been identified with taking a prescription drug.
Side Effects of Byetta® Use
Byetta® works by stimulating the pancreas to secrete insulin when blood sugar levels are high. Possible side effects or negative patient outcomes can include:
- Nausea or Vomiting
- Chronic Diarrhea
- Changes in Urine Color
- Frequency of Urination or the Amount of Urine
- Unexplained Swelling of the Hands or Feet
- Unexplained Fatigue
- Changes in Appetite or Digestion
NOTE: In addition to the side effects listed above, the drug may have contributed to the development of altered kidney malfunction which can lead to waste build up in the blood. This can cause serious illness and life threatening conditions.
