Byetta (exenatide) is an injectable twice daily drug used to treat type 2 diabetes. It was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2005, and has been prescribed by physicians to millions of Americans in the last decade.
Pancreatitis is a medical condition that causes the pancreas to become inflamed and swell. Severe cases of pancreatitis can cause hospitalization and even death. According to Drugwatch.com the Institute of Safe Medication Practices gathered data from the FDA and found that there were more that 400 reports of acute and chronic pancreatitis in 2011 resulting from byetta.
This data from the FDA also revealed that pancreatitis was 49 times more likely to be reported by people using byetta than by people using a different drug in the same classification.
