Januvia, Janumet, Byetta & Victoza are all drugs that are prescribed for people with type 2 diabetes and are having trouble controlling their blood sugar. These drugs are intended to help control blood sugar by triggering your pancreas to release insulin if your blood sugar is too high, stop your liver from releasing too much sugar, and slow the rate that your stomach processes food so you don't experience a spike in blood sugar.
While these drugs may accomplish these tasks, they also have been found to cause pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer as well. If you or a loved one are suffering a pancreatic ailment due to Januvia, Janumet, Byetta & Victoza, allow our Newport News dangerous drug attorneys to help you. We have experience with these types of cases and will work tirelessly to get you the settlement you deserve. Call us today at (800) 361-0430.
Dangerous Drugs Lawsuits
While Januvia, Janumet, Byetta & Victoza drugs were all approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) between 2005 and 2010, the FDA has now issued warnings that these drugs may cause complications like pancreatic disease. The fact that the drugs are still allowed on the market while their producers know that they have such harmful side effects makes it possible to file a defective product lawsuit against them.
The current lawsuits against the producers of these drugs also attest that they believe the drug companies knew about the possible side effects, but put the drugs into circulation anyway.

- Pain and suffering
- Past, present, and future medical expenses
- Loss of employment if your illness caused you to have to leave your job
