San Diego, CA (PRWEB) June 22, 2012

The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than Barbara Potuznik and her husband Joseph. And yet, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.

According to court documents, on April 26th, 2012, an Illinois couple, Barbara and Joseph Potuznik, filed a lawsuit in Pennsylvania Eastern District Court (case no. 2:2012cv02252) alleging that Barbara suffered a heart attack caused by Avandia. Avandia is a popular drug, used to treat type 2 diabetes, manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline and approved by the FDA in 1999. The plaintiffs claim that Barbara Potuznik suffered a heart attack and congestive heart after she was prescribed the diabetes drug Avandia. Although the FDA did not announce an Avandia Recall in 2011, the agency informed healthcare providers and patients that they must enroll in a special program in order to prescribe and receive these drugs.

The lawsuit was filed in the Avandia multi-district litigation (07-01871). More than 2,500 cases are consolidated before Judge Cynthia M. Rufe in Avandia Litigation and plaintiffs claim to have suffered heart attacks attributed to their Avandia use.

AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, can provide helpful advice and simple solutions including how to get in contact with legal counsel so that, in case of severe complications from Avandia, someone can easily and inexpensively deal with it. As Mr. Burke, director of Media Relations for AttorneyOne.com, added, “What all this information really illustrates is that potential threat from Avandia remains. For that reason, our focus should squarely fall on getting the word out and assisting people in finding the right legal assistance.”

In May 2007, the New England Journal of Medicine published an independent review of the 2005 clinical data revealing an increase of 43% in the risk of heart attacks and an increase of over 60% in the risk of cardiovascular death associated with the use of Avandia. In September 2010, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced that it will significantly restrict the use of the diabetes drug Avandia (rosiglitazone) to patients with Type 2 diabetes who cannot control their diabetes on other medications.

AttorneyOne.com has further information on Avandia lawsuits including how to get in contact with legal counsel.
