Multaq® Injury Lawsuits
If you or a loved one is taking Multaq® for atrial fibrillation, there are some risks you should be aware of. Multaq® has been linked to serious, life-threatening side effects in some users, including death, stroke, heart failure and liver problems.
In July 2011, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) notified patients and health care providers that results from a clinical trial of Multaq® revealed that the drug doubled the risk of death, heart failure and stroke in patients with permanent atrial fibrillation.
According to the agency, the clinical trial was stopped early due to the findings. The FDA noted that the results raise questions about how the results apply to patients who use the drug for non-permanent atrial fibrillation.
This is the not the first FDA warning involving Multaq®. In January 2011, the FDA issued a safety alert to notify health care providers about cases of severe liver injury that were associated with Multaq®, including two cases of acute liver failure in which the patients needed liver transplants.
