Default Death by Avandia

My husbands Dr. prescribed Avandia knowing that he suffered from heart failure. He swelled gradually and when his scrotum swelled it was an emergency which put him in the hospital for two weeks while they attempted to extract the fluid from all over his body. His heart monitor was almost flat lined yet they still administered and prescribed Avandia to him. He went home but had difficulty getting around. Then within less than two months he had a heart attack in the middle of the night. He was rushed to the emergency room by ambulance and was in and out of hospitals and nursing homes until his death eight months later. He was only 59. They continued to give him Avandia. He had some very unusual swelling of the arms and fluid would wheep from the pores in his arms. Don't take Avandia! It's a killer!

Default Avandia research

Dear Ms. L,

I hope you don't mind my contacting you directly. I work for the Bureau of Investigative Journalism in London, UK. We're currently researching the use and effects of Avandia for an international TV programme, to be aired late July.

I've been speaking to lawyers, members of the US department of health, and academics about the side effects of Avandia. But then I came across your story on this forum. I was shocked by what you and your late husband had to go through as a result of the drug, and am so sorry to hear about your husband's passing. The side effects of Avandia have been shown to be terrible, none more so than in your case.

I was wondering, would you mind speaking to me about your experiences with Avandia, for my research?

You can contact me via a message on this website, or on the email address:

I hope to speak with you soon,

Many thanks,

Emma, the Bureau.
