The FDA has issued a severe Black Box Warning for gout-treatment drug Uloric, which indicates the highest level of danger for drugs still on the market. Uloric, also known as febuxostat, is a medication used to treat a type of arthritis called gout that is caused by a buildup of uric acid in one or more joints.
The FDA required drug manufacturer Takeda Pharmaceuticals to conduct clinical safety trials for the gout drug Uloric, and researchers later reported that Uloric increased the risk of cardiac arrest, stroke and death. The clinical testing also found that patients are more likely to suffer fatal cardiovascular events such as heart attacks using Uloric than those using a similar gout-treatment drug called allopurinol.
Individuals who have been prescribed Uloric and have experienced heart attack, stroke, or heart-related death may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses and injuries:
Allan Berger & Associates is currently evaluating inquiries for individuals and their family members that have been affected by the dangerous side effects of Uloric.
