Onglyza and Kombiglyze XR Lawsuits

Onglyza and Kombiglyze XR are prescribed for the treatment of Type 2 diabetes in adults. These medications are designed to help diabetic patients control their blood sugar levels by blocking a critical enzyme. A clinical trial in 2013 and a FDA warning in 2016 reported that patients taking Onglyza and Kombiglyze XR were at an increased risk of heart failure.

What is Onglyza and Kombiglyze XR?

Onglyza and Kombiglyze XR contain the active ingredient, saxagliptin, which is part of the class of dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitor drugs (DPP-4). DPP-4 drugs are recommended in conjunction with diet and exercise to reduce blood sugar levels in diabetic patients.

What is Happening with Onglyza and Kombiglyze XR?

There is evidence that medications containing saxagliptin may lead to heart failure, especially in patients with a history of heart or kidney disease. In 2013, the New England Journal of Medicine found that hospitalization rates for heart failure were elevated in patients taking saxagliptin. The study concluded that other approaches for managing blood sugar levels should be investigated to reduce the incidence of heart failure in patients with diabetes.

The FDA has investigated the link between saxagliptin, alogliptin, and heart disease. In 2016, the FDA released a safety announcement concerning the increased risk of heart disease for users of these drugs. The FDA reviewed two clinical trials in patients with heart disease. The trial corroborated previous results demonstrating that more patients who were administered medications containing saxagliptin and alogliptin were admitted to the hospital for heart failure than those who were administered a placebo. As a result of its findings, the FDA added new labels alerting patients to the risks of heart failure.

A plaintiff has filed a product liability lawsuit alleging that the manufacturer of Kombiglyze XR did not divulge information regarding the safety of the medication to the public.
