These Diabetes Drugs May Cause Deadly Complications
Onglyza and Kombiglyze XR are related Type 2 diabetes medications that promise to lower A1C and fasting blood glucose for those who struggle to control their blood sugar levels with diet alone. Both medications are manufactured and marketed by AstraZeneca. Kombiglyze XR actually contains Onglyza but is longer-acting thanks to the addition of classic diabetes drug metformin.
These drugs appear to work well, but there are some serious allegations about their safety. In 2016, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) required the company to add additional warnings about the risk of heart failure and other cardiovascular side effects to the packaging of all drugs containing saxagliptin.
In addition, there have been reports that link the drug to both pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer. While not initially on the warning labels when the drug went to market, a warning for pancreatitis was added to warning labels for both Onglyza and Kombiglyze XR.
