Byetta®

HDSMJ Trial Lawyers - Justice for You

Byetta® is a drug taken by diabetic patients that has been linked to severe pancreatic problems. If you have taken Byetta® and have suffered acute pancreatitis, a swelling of the pancreas that may cause nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain, contact our Byetta®lawyers today at 866-539-2648 for a free case evaluation. In October 2007, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)issued a public health alert after receiving reports that as many as 30 patients had developed significant pancreatic problems after using Byetta®. These problems included acute pancreatitis, which if not treated could be fatal. However, even if caught and treated, the patient could face life-long medical treatment. FDA Focuses on Byetta® DeathsRecently, the FDA reported six additional cases of patients who took Byetta®and suffered hemorrhagic or necrotizing pancreatitis. Of the six new cases, two patients died. We have asserted on behalf of our clients that the manufacturers' warnings were deficient. The FDA is now working with the manufacturers of Byetta to strengthen the warnings on the label. Since the inception of the FDA, people like you have trusted that the pharmaceutical products that they purchase or that have been prescribed were stringently tested and been found safe for consumption. Unfortunately, that is not necessarily the case for the consumer ingesting some pharmaceutical drugs or the doctors prescribing them. Pharmaceutical Companies Motivated by Profits, not Safety Taking full advantage of the public's need for new medicines and driven by profits, the pharmaceutical companies are pushing harder than ever before for quick FDA approval. The manufacturer of Byetta®had sales of over $600 million last year alone. Even though many people are suffering from serious injuries, the pharmaceutical companies now enjoy some of the largest profits in the world.
