Black Box Warning For Actos and Avandia

| Oct 31, 2007

The FDA has spoken: the heart risk warnings on labels of Avandia (rosiglitazone) and Actos (pioglitazone) will now be surrounded by an emphatic black outline known as a black box. Black boxes will also be added to the warnings on Avandaryl (rosiglitazone and glimepiride), Avandamet (rosiglitazone and metformin), and Duetact (pioglitazone and glimepiride).

To catch up on the whole Avandia hoopla, read "The Latest About Avandia and Actos", "Amid Accusatory Debate, FDA Puts Black Box Warning on Avandia and Actos", and "Updated: Analysis Associates Avandia With Greater Risk of Heart Attack".
