WASHINGTON (AP) — The Food and Drug Administration is looking into new evidence that a group of recently approved diabetes drugs can increase the risk of pancreatitis and other problems.
The agency said Thursday samples of pancreas tissue taken from a small number of patients showed inflammation and cellular changes that often precede cancer. Academic researchers took the samples from diabetes patients who were taking the new medications, after they died from various causes.
(CNN) – A popular antibiotic used to treat bacterial infections can cause abnormal — and possibly fatal — heart rhythms in some patients, according to a new warning from the Food and Drug Administration.
The drug, azithromycin, sells under the name Zithromax or Zmax and is commonly sold in what’s called a Z-Pak.
