Parke-Davis' Rezulin Linked By FDA to 28 Deaths

The FDA has advised that diabetes drug Rezulin, manufactured by Parke-Davis, only be used as a last resort for diabetes, because it has been linked to 28 deaths and serious liver damage. Rezulin's generic name is troglitazone. It has been used to treat type 2 diabetes (non-insulin dependent or "adult onset" diabetes).

If you are taking Rezulin, make sure your doctor is carefully and frequently monitoring your liver function with tests, and discuss this new information with your doctor, who has probably already received a letter from Parke-Davis about the use of Rezulin. If you or someone close to you has been affected by this drug, Silverman & Fodera, P.C. stands ready to assist you.
