Kombiglyze Injury

Giving Patients a Strong Advocate

When one takes medication, it is reasonable to expect that doing so will help alleviate certain medical conditions. Those with type 2 diabetes who were prescribed Kombiglyze would reasonably expect that taking it would help control their blood sugar and combat hyperglycemia. Unfortunately for some users, taking Kombiglyze caused led to a serious medical complication that caused or almost resulted in death.

At Fibich, Leebron, Copeland & Briggs, our team of dedicated attorneys has a proven track record for success.

What Are the Dangers of Taking Kombiglyze?

In 2016, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) found that medications containing saxagliptin increased the risk of heart failure in patients with preexisting heart and kidney conditions. In 2017, the FDA added a black box warning to Kombiglyze regarding the risk of lactic acidosis.

Besides lactic acidosis and heart failure, other side-effects of Kombiglyze include:

  • Pancreatitis – inflammation of the pancreas
  • Arthralgia – severe joint pain
  • Hypoglycemia – low blood sugar

If you suspect that you are suffering from a severe side-effect of Kombiglyze, you should call your doctor immediately. Importantly, do not stop taking Kombiglyze without first consulting a healthcare professional.

If you have experienced the following symptoms of heart failure, contact a health care professional immediately:

  • Unusual shortness of breath during daily activities
  • Trouble breathing when lying down
  • Weakness, exhaustion, fatigue
  • Weight gain with swelling in the joints and extremities

If you have experienced the following symptoms, consult a health care professional as soon as possible as you may be suffering from lactic acidosis:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • General muscle weakness
  • Rapid Breathing
