Onglyza (saxagliptin) is a type 2 diabetes medication that was approved by the FDA on July 31, 2009. The drug is used to help control blood sugar in type 2 diabetes patients who do not suffer from diabetic ketoacidosis – a condition where the body breaks down fat cells, creating a toxic amount of ketones in the blood stream.
It works to promote healthy blood-sugar levels as well as insulin regulation.
The controversial drug has grown in popularity due to it lacking a common side effect of weight gain that most drugs of this type are associated with. The medication saw sales of nearly $800 million in 2015, and that number is expected to increase each year.
Lawsuits are currently being investigated for patients who have been diagnosed with heart disease, including heart failure, after being prescribed Onglyza.
