Onglyza Lawsuit Attorney

Onglyza, which is known as saxagliptin, is a dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitor and incretin memetic class medication that is used for individuals with adult type 2 diabetes. The medication is manufactured by Bristol-Meyers Squibb and AstraZeneca. The manufacturers claim with a healthy diet and exercise Onglyza can effectively reduce blood sugar in individuals who have type 2 diabetes.

The oral medication is taken to regulate the levels of insulin in individuals with type 2 diabetes when taken with a meal. The medication was approved by the United States Federal Drug Administration (FDA) in 2009. The medication uses dipeptidyl peptidase-4 to break down the two types of hormones, which are known as GLP-1 and GOP. The body releases the two hormones while eating, which is why the medication is recommended to be taken at mealtime. The medication should not be used by those who have a history of diabetic ketoacidosis, gallstones, alcoholism, and high blood triglyceride levels.

Onglyza is recommended as part of treatment for type 2 diabetes, which can include other medications and weight management. The recommended dosage for Onglyza is once per day and should be taken the same time every day. The dosage of the medication is administered in 2.5 mg or 5 mg. In 2011, Bristol-Meyers Squibb and AstraZeneca made more than $700 million in Onglyza sales, which made it a top-selling medication for that year.

If you or someone you know has incurred health complications from taking Onglyza, then compensation should be sought after. The neglect of the manufactures of Onglyza are accountable for the health problems that occurred in those who took the medication. For more information, contact us for a consultation.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
