Dangerous Drugs Rezulin

Rezulin, or troglitazone, was a prescription diabetes drug that was used to control Type 2 diabetes in combination with insulin or sulfonylurea. Rezulin helped to regulate blood glucose levels, effectively controlling diabetes. However, increasing evidence that Rezulin was linked to liver toxicity led the FDA to issue a recall of Rezulin.

Rezulin was approved in just six months on the "fast track" FDA method reserved for drugs considered to be a breakthrough in January 1997. Rezulin manufacturer, Warner-Lambert, downplayed the liver damage Rezulin posed by claiming the diabetes drug was low risk despite knowing as early as 1993 of at least 12 people that suffered from liver damage that was potentially life threatening.

The FDA issued a recall of Rezulin due to increasing reports of liver damage and liver failure. The FDA had been receiving reports of liver failure since Rezulins approval and had strengthened the warnings in 1997.

Rezulin Side Effects:

  • Nausea
  • Jaundice
  • Abdominal pain
  • Liver failure
