Researchers: Avandia does not increase heart attack risk
U.S. – A new study said the diabetes drug Avandia does not increase the risk of heart attacks.
In a report published in the medical journal, “Circulation,” researchers said that diabetic patients who took the drug were no less likely to die of heart attacks than other diabetic patients who did not take it over the same period of time.
That conflicts with earlier restrictions on prescribing the drug after several studies found it increased the risk of heart attacks.
