Januvia® Attorneys Jacksonville
FDA Recall, Warning or Action: The FDA has warned that there may be an association between sitagliptin/metformin and development of acute pancreatitis in cases that have been reviewed.
Our defective drugs lawyers understand that most people will need to take a prescription drug at some point in their lives. When we learn that a drug manufacturer or healthcare products company has been deemed as putting profits over patients, our attorneys launch a deliberate search to pinpoint those who have responsibility for the patient’s damages. In some cases, the problem comes from the drug company’s failure to report contraindicated situations, provide thorough directions or to tell consumers about known side effects.
Side Effects of Januvia® Use
Sitagliptin is grouped with other medications known as dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitors. Januvia® is an oral diabetes prescription that regulates the levels of insulin your body produces after eating. Possible side effects or negative patient outcomes include:
- Ongoing Pain in the Upper Left/Middle Stomach
- Nausea or Vomiting
- Loss of Appetite
- Severe Life Threatening Inflammation of the Pancreas
NOTE: Merck, the drug company who makes Januvia®, was identified as having failed to adhere to the FDA guidelines as they related to proper testing of the drug.
