FDA takes action on Onglyza
The FDA originally issued a Drug Safety Communication for saxagliptin (brand name Onglyza and Kombiglyze XR) on February 11, 2014. The FDA requested clinical trial data from the maker to investigate a possible link between this type 2 diabetes drug and heart failure.
The FDA took this action after a study by the New England Journal of Medicine which studied the cardiovascular safety and efficacy of many current antihyperglycemic agents, including saxagliptin (Onglyza). They reported an increased rate of hospitalization for heart failure.
Then in April 2016 they updated their Drug Safety Communication after they evaluated two large scale clinical trials for people with type 2 diabetes with heart disease. It was found that 3.5% of those who took saxagliptin (Onglyza) were hospitalized for heart failure. This equates to 35 out of 1,000 patients. The FDA has not yet issued it strongest warning called a “boxed warning” for Onglyza.
