Onglyza and Kombiglyze XR
Onglyza (Saxagliptin) and Kombiglyze XR (Saxagliptin/Metformin) are Type-2 diabetes drugs intended to help control blood sugar levels. A recent clinical trial, however, concluded that users of Onglyza and Kombiglyze XR are more likely to suffer from heart failure. Onglyza users have filed lawsuits alleging AstraZeneca, the manufacturer of Onglyza and Kombiglyze XR, failed to warn users of the increased risk of heart failure. People who have suffered from heart failure while taking Onglyza or Kombiglyze XR may be entitled to substantial compensation for their injuries.
If you lost a loved one who died of heart failure while taking Onglyza or Kombiglyze XR, you may be eligible to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of the heirs.
FDA Advisory Committee
Following the release of the SAVOR study, the FDA formed an Advisory Committee of 15 members to evaluate Onglyza. At the conclusion of the meeting, 14 of the members recommended Onglyza and Kombiglyze XR should have a label that warns users of heart failure. The remaining Committee member recommended AstraZeneca should stop selling Onglyza and Kombiglyze XR. To date, the labels of Onglyza and Kombiglyze XR still do not warn people of the increased risk of heart failure.
