Rezulin was a drug that was used to treat type 2 diabetes before it was recalled on March 21 in the year 2000. After this drug resulted in serious problems and death for many of the patients taking it, the FDA then requested that the manufacturer stop selling their product. Rezulin is an antihyperglycemic agent. It helps your body respond better to insulin and it reduces the amount of sugar produced by your liver. It can help control blood sugar levels. Rezulin is used to treat non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (type II diabetes), along with diet and exercise, and insulin, a sulfonylurea, or metformin (Glucophage) if necessary.
Aside from liver failure, patients have suffered from other conditions as well. For example, Diarrhea, Pharyngitis, Rhinitis, Peripheral Edema, Asthenia, Urinary Tract Infection and other infections are just some of the many injuries that have resulted from normal dosages of Rezulin.
