Diabetes Medications

Drug companies often promote new and expensive diabetes drugs, even when older, less expensive medications are equally effective. The manufacturer may claim that the new drugs offer improved patient benefits. In some cases, however, the new drugs also carry risks for the patient that the time-tested medications do not.

At The Ronan Law Firm in Overland Park, our lawyers represent seriously injured people in Kansas, Missouri, and throughout the United States who have been harmed by dangerous drugs, including diabetes medications. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.

Representing People Injured By Dangerous Diabetes Drugs

Many people with diabetes live longer and healthier lives because of improved prescription medications. For the safety of patients, drug manufacturers have an obligation to inform doctors and the FDA of risks associated with the new drugs. In some cases, drug manufacturers know of serious drug side effects, but hide the negative information because it interferes with their marketing efforts.

Examples of diabetes drugs with serious, potential side effects include:

  • Incretin mimetic drugs for adults with type 2 diabetes, including Byetta, Januvia and Victoza. These drugs have been associated with thyroid cancer, pancreatitis and precancerous changes in the pancreas.
  • Thiazolidinediones, such as Actos, which have been shown to cause or exacerbate bladder cancer in some patients.

If you or a loved one has suffered a serious health problem after taking a diabetes medication, contact our law firm. Attorney William P. Ronan has a track record of successful results in dangerous drug cases.
