    It should be noted that as critics call for the halt of this clinical trial, GSK is struggling to even find willing participants for TIDE. Given all the bad news regarding Avandia lately, I'm not surprised.

    I can personally attest to the dangers of avandia as compared to actos as I am currently taking actos and have had no ill effects since I started taking it especially after having sufferered a stroke and losing part of my eye sight while on avandia the year and a half previously back in May of 2007. And which has left me disabled. It needs to be taken off the market.

      Hi Juanita, I'm sorry to hear about all you've been through since starting Avandia. We've heard from quite a number of folks who've had bad experiences with Avandia–and also Actos. There are lawyers who are reviewing patient claims regarding Avandia side effects and if you'd like, you can submit a claim for review at this link:

    My doctor started me on AvandaMet in Oct. 2007. I stopped taking it in April 2009. In September 2010 I suffered a TIA whcih was diagnosed by my neurologist at the VA. There has never been any instance of strokes in my family history and I was prescribed AvandaMet even though my doctor knew of my heart attack in 1997 which required a stent implant in my right coronary artery. I finally filed a claim after hearing a commercial on the dangers of Avandia associated with strokes whcih I had never heard before (only heard about heart issues). The attorney's accepted my case and I'm awaiting the outcome.

    My Dr,, never warned me of the ban or the Drug Avandia/ Avandiamet is not good , I was given scrips since 2004, and used it till I had a stroke,01/01/2007, was hospitalised for 2 months, & now have no use of my left sideof my body, filed a claim ,2009, and not hearing from my lawyers, I was told, the defence has my case, & waiting the outcome.

    I recieved an 80% settlement on my avandia case after waiting 7yrs. My defense said GSK was holding the other 20% until my medicaid settle for there portion. I think they put a cap on it of $10,000. It has been about 6mo. Do you know anything about this issue? Please answer. Thank you

      Hi Daniel, You'll have to follow up with your attorney on this– would not have information on the terms of a specific individual's settlement agreement–so best to contact your lawyer.

      We also are waiting Daniel. It's been over a year for us, and we are still waiting. Something is not right here.

  • Mary A March 2, 2013 at 6:50 pm

    Avandia has not paid settlements on the 700 as listed. My husband is one of them. He was paid half the money then told there was a hold up. Some judge has put a hold on the balance to be paid to the plaintiff's.We have heard time and time again for over a year now that nothing has changed, the money is still in limbo.So to correct the record, nothing has been settled.

  • genny rivero April 30, 2013 at 12:06 pm

    we received part of the settlement to pending the medicare/Medicaid holdback, even though we did not have medicare/Medicaid. my husband passed away last month from heart failure at 56 and they tell me no you cant sue for that. his heart gradually got weaker and weaker since taking Avandia and having a heart attack in 07.

  • Marlene S August 13, 2014 at 1:04 pm

    My family and I have put our case in to a law firm. Everytime I have called and asked about the Avandia lawsuit but they keep telling me they have not come to a settlement yet. Personally I think the law firm will get most of the money. We lost my mother!! Not that any amount of money can replace her. But she suffered not them.
