For Diabetes, Type 2: I had terrible leg cramps all over my legs for hours at night. So bad nearly all muscles in both legs at same time. I passed out with pain so severe. The day I quit Avandia the cramps stopped.

For Diabetes, Type 2: Although Avandia was very efficient in controlling my blood sugars, I had a reaction to it which resulted in my heart skipping beats beating very hard. While on Avandia, I was unable to complete stress tests. After quitting Avandia, I have had no more heart problems and can now successfully complete stress tests.

For Diabetes, Type 2: Avandia had some side effects with me that the doctors thought was cancer. They insisted it could not be the medicine but after over a year of multiple scans biopsies and bone marrow tests, I chose to quit taking the medicine on my own. My blood sugar skyrocketed but my immune system started working again. I haven't had to go to the hospital since.

For Diabetes, Type 2: Numbers were good but weight gain was terrible. Gained 5 pounds almost immediately; a total of 30 altogether.

For Diabetes, Type 2: Very effective but some side effects. Causes weight gain. Potential cardiac health risks. Has some unintended good side effects too though.

For Diabetes, Type 2: I used Avandia 8mg once a day for 5 years and A1c went from 9 to 5.4. I had a headache in the beginning. No other problems. Then the big scare happened and my doctor took me off and I am on glipizide. I think I will go back to Avandia.
