Onglyza, also sold as Kombiglyze XR, is a prescription medication used by individuals with Type 2 diabetes to regulate blood sugar levels. Despite FDA approval, many concerns were soon raised about the medication. Along with listed side effects, it was soon revealed that taking Onglyza could drastically increase an individual’s chances of experiencing cardiovascular failure and other serious cardiovascular events. Because of this, the FDA decided in April of 2015 to increase warning labels on the medication. However, many argued that the drug should be pulled from the market completely due to the severity of possible side effects.
At Hach & Rose, LLP, our Onglyza lawsuit attorneys are dedicated to representing individuals who have suffered harm when the medications they believed were safe for use actually caused them to suffer from devastating and potentially deadly side effects. We know that taking on a large pharmaceutical company can seem like an overwhelming prospect, but we are here to help.
Side Effects of Onglyza
Although many individuals who take Onglyza or Kombiglyze XR do not experience adverse side effects, those who do can suffer from extremely serious and life-threatening complications. Some of the potential negative side effects associated with taking Onglyza include:
- Increased Risk of Heart Failure
- Increased Risk of Pancreatitis
- Urinary Tract Infection
- Upper Respiratory Tract Infection
Individuals who experience these or similar side effects may feel that they have limited options to receive financial restitution for the harm they suffered.

At Hach & Rose, LLP, we are ready to handle your legal concerns for you while you focus on your health and your family.
