Avandia side effects
Avandia is an antidiabetic medicine, containing Rosiglitazone maleate.
Avandia can cause or worsen congestive heart failure, with side effects such as excessive, rapid weight gain, dyspnea, or edema. Fluid retention, which may lead to heart failure, can occur. Myocardial ischemia is a known adverse effect of Avandia. A common side effect is weight gain, caused by both fluid retention and fat accumulation.
Decreases in mean hemoglobin and hematocrit values are known, dose-related side effects.
Therapy with Avandia may result in ovulation in a percentage of premenopausal anovulatory women. These women may be at an increased risk for pregnancy while taking Avandia.
Reported side effects of Avandia are upper respiratory tract infection, back pain, hyperglycemia, headache, fatigue, sinusitis, diarrhea and hypoglycemia.
Growth retardation was a demonstrated adverse effect in rat fetuses. In September, the FDA stopped just short of an Avandia recall amid growing concerns about an increased risk of heart attacks and other cardiovascular side effects of Avandia. Instead, severe restrictions have been placed on Avandia s use and availability.
