Review of Avandia (rosiglitazone) and Cardiovascular Safety

Avandia Safety Announcement

The Federal Drug Administration has issued Safety Communication concerning the ongoing review of the drug Avandia (rosiglitazone) as it relates to cardiovascular safety.

Avandia is the brand name of an oral drug called rosiglitazone. Avandia is anti-diabetic drug in the thiazolidinedione class of drugs.  The drug is used to treat Type 2 diabetes.

Thiazolidinediones act as “insulin sensitizers,”  helping the body’s cells become more sensitive to insulin and thereby reduce glucose in the blood stream.

The FDA issued a safety communication concerning the possible association between rosiglitazone and an increased cardiovascular risk or risk of heart attack.
