Uloric Warning Labels Updated With Stroke Risk

Symptoms of a Stroke
The symptoms of a stroke often appear suddenly, and may include:
- Face drooping
- Arm weakness
- Speech difficulty
- Numbness on one side
- Confusion or trouble understanding other people
- Vision loss in one or both eyes
- Severe headache
- And more
Risk of Stroke from Uloric
Takeda Pharmaceuticals studied 6,000 people who took Uloric or allopurinol. For every 1,000 people who took Uloric for 1 year, 15 people died of a stroke, heart attack, or another heart-related problem.
Uloric Lawsuits & Class Actions
A growing number of lawsuits have been filed by people who took Uloric and suffered strokes, heart attacks, or family members of people who died. The plaintiffs accuse Takeda Pharmaceuticals of selling a dangerous medication and failing to warn about side effects.
Uloric Cardiovascular Side Effects
The most severe cardiovascular side effects linked to Uloric include heart attack, stroke, heart disease, cardiac death, unstable angina (decreased blood-flow to the heart), non-fatal myocardial infarction, and death.
