Don’t Be a Silent Victoza Victim
Victoza, a Type 2 diabetes drug, has been under scrutiny by public health advocacy groups, medical researchers, and the FDA since its release in 2010. The FDA issued a Drug Safety Communication in 2013, showing that Victoza quadruples the risk of acute pancreatitis. Early clinical trials also showed that patients who took Victoza developed pancreatitis much more frequently than patients who took other Type 2 diabetes drugs. The FDA had earlier warned of Victoza’s link to kidney dysfunction and kidney failure.
If you have taken Victoza and developed a serious health condition such as pancreatitis, pancreatic cancer, thyroid cancer, or kidney failure, you could be entitled to receive financial compensation. Call 1-800-THE-LAW2 for a free consultation with a Victoza lawyer today.
