FDA warns diabetic patients of potential pharmacy errors

Comments (0)

Diabetes patients often take a number of medicines to control different symptoms, like high blood pressure. Every year, an estimated 51.5 million pharmacy errors take place while filling 3 billion prescriptions, some of which are due to supplying one individual with multiple prescriptions of incompatible drugs.

New drug warning for diabetics taking aliskiren 
Just last month, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warned patients of a potential risk when combining blood pressure medicines containing aliskiren with other drugs called angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs) and angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) in patients with diabetes or kidney impairment.

While the FDA has not concluded that there is a link between these drugs and death or stroke, the data from their study suggested an increase in these episodes for patients taking aliskiren plus an ARB or ACEI.

The FDA states that using aliskiren with ARBs or ACEIs in patients with diabetes is contraindicated because of the risk of renal impairment, hypotension, and hyperkalemia. New recommendations will be added to drug labels.

Do not stop taking aliskiren without consulting your healthcare professional.

If you are given these drugs and you experience side effects you could be the victim of a pharmacy error. The health problems caused by pharmacy errors can have such a dramatic effect on the victim’s lifestyle that mobility or work commitments may be affected.

If you are a diabetes sufferer and have been the victim of prescription malpractice then you should contact a personal injury lawyer to assess your claim to help recover compensation for injuries.

Our principal attorneys, Galvin B. Kennedy and David W. Hodges, are board certified in personal injury trial law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. If you would like to start a free case review with one of our pharmacy error lawyers you may contact us toll-free at 1-888-526-7616.
