Januvia Lawsuit Lawyer

Why Are Januvia Lawsuits Being Filed?

Those suffering from type 2 diabetes have filed lawsuits against makers of Januvia. In most claims, consumers blame Januvia for dangerous side effects, including pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer.

Our team’s position is this:

  • Januvia is a defective and dangerous drug
  • The makers of Januvia did not properly test this medication
  • Consumers were not warned of the increased risk for cancer and other side effects (see below)
  • This drug’s safety was misrepresented in advertisements and marketing

About Januvia

Januvia is only available with a prescription, and doctors often use this drug to help patients control type 2 diabetes.

In May 2013, the FDA issued a warning linking Januvia and other similar drugs to an increased risk of serious complications and pancreatic diseases.

Januvia Side Effects & Injuries

Some of the most serious side effects and injuries mentioned in a Januvia Lawsuit include:

  • Pancreatic Cancer – this type of cancer rarely has noticeable symptoms in the early stages, making it difficult to cure in time.
  • Pancreatitis – research has suggested that Januvia can cause inflammation in the pancreas (pancreatitis), which can cause severe abdominal pain, fever, nausea, and rapid pulse.
  • Persistent Abdominal Pain – some patients have reported suffering abdominal pain that was not directly related to pancreatitis. See a doctor immediately.
  • Hypoglycemia – when medications don’t work properly, they can actually do more harm. Januvia is intended to lower a patient’s blood sugar, but if this level becomes too low, they can suffer hypoglycemia, which has several serious symptoms. If left untreated, this can be deadly.
  • Heart Failure – According to research published in JACC Heart Failure, patients taking Januvia experienced an 84% increase in ER visits for heart failure.

I am very thankful and appreciative for the wonderful job that The Barnes Firm has done for me with my auto accident. I think I was lucky to have Landon and Ali worked on my case. They were always available for me.

I was in a car accident and contacted, The Barnes Firm. I was transferred to an attorney right away. The attorney was very pleasant and helpful. He answered all my questions. He set up an appointment that same week. The attorney himself, came over to my home. He went over the paperwork and explained the procedure very thoroughly. The attorney’s paralegal contacted me right away. The office has been in touch with me and genuinely concerned about my injuries. This firm was on top of my case. I highly recommend them. Please call The Barnes Firm.

My attorney and his Assistant helped me through my injury case. It was a real pleasure having their legal advice available to me in a time when I couldn’t think straight or even figure out what to do after my accident injury.
