Prescription drugs Januvia, Janumet, Byetta, and Victoza are popular type-2 diabetes treatments, but reports of dangerous side effects including pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer raise questions about whether the drugs’ risks outweigh their benefits. Many people who have suffered from these side effects have filed lawsuits against the makers of these drugs: Merck (producer of Januvia and Janumet), Amylin, Eli Lilly and Bristol-Myers Squibb (producers of Byetta), and Novo Nordisk A/S (producer of Victoza).
Lawsuits allege the drugmakers marketed these medications despite knowing they were dangerous, and failed to warn the public about the risk of pancreatic cancer and pancreatitis. If you or a loved one has suffered dangerous side effects from Januvia, Janumet, Byetta or Victoza, you may be eligible for compensation for your injuries.
