I am an insulin dependent diabetic they call me brittle. I started using Avandia two years ago and it was so good I didn't have to use insulin any more the pill did it all. Then after two years it stopped working cold turkey. I am now back to insulin only. No other oral medication works. I would like to know why Avandia all of a sudden stopped working. No one has an answer.?

I am concerned about weakness in the joints and being tired. Vision seems to have become a little less clear. Not sure if medication is the cause. In the process of finding out.

After experiencing Congestive Heart Failure in 2003, my doctors prescribed Avandia to treat my Diabetes II disease. While being observed by a cardiologist and a diabetes specialist, I took Avandia oral for 2 years until the FDA warned against its use. I never experienced any side effects and my blood sugar was effectively controlled with Metformin and Glyburide without insulin to an A1C of 6.8.
