The prescription drug Onglyza is prescribed for people with type 2 diabetes. The drug helps control blood sugar, which can stop kidney problems, blindness and many other common diabetes complications. Unfortunately, Onglyza has come under fire as a possible factor in a number of cases of heart failure.
When you are a diabetic you are at the mercy of the medications you receive to allow you to live a normal life. If the medications prescribed to you put your life in danger, as Onglyza can, you may have few places to turn. Rosenbaum & Rosenbaum, P.C. has been helping our clients throughout New York get the compensation they deserve when their medicine turns out to be dangerous.
