Rezulin

North Carolina Rezulin lawyer

Rezulin (troglitazone) is listed in a class of drugs known as thiazolidinediones. This anti-diabetic and anti-inflammatory drug was developed by Daiichi Sankyo (a Japanese company) and introduced and manufactured in the United States by Parke-Davis in the late 1990s. People with type 2 diabetes used Rezulin.

Thiazolidinediones improve insulin sensitivity in skeletal muscle and suppress hepatic glucose output.

Rezulin side effects

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the use of Rezulin in 1997, even though the drug was linked to liver and heart damage. Dozens of patients were hospitalized with liver-related ailments, including liver damage and liver failure.

Rezulin was recalled in March 2000.
