FDA Updates Uloric Warnings With Stroke Risk

In February 2019, the FDA added a Black Box Warning on Uloric about the increased risk of stroke, heart attack and death compared to another gout drug called allopurinol, which is also known as Zyloprim or Aloprim.

Symptoms of a Stroke

Patients on Uloric should seek emergency medical attention for symptoms of a stroke. These symptoms often appear suddenly, and may include:

  • Face drooping
  • Arm weakness
  • Problems talking
  • Numbness or weakness on one side
  • Confusion
  • Vision loss
  • Sudden severe headache
  • And more

Estimated Stroke Risk from Uloric

An estimated 15 people die of a stroke, heart attack, or other heart-related problem out of every 1,000 people who took Uloric for 1 year, according to a safety study of Uloric that involved 6,000 people.

Uloric Lawsuits & Class Actions

Takeda Pharmaceuticals is facing a growing number of lawsuits from people who suffered strokes and other cardiovascular events after taking Uloric. These lawsuits accuse Takeda of selling a dangerous drug and failing to warn about severe, life-threatening side effects.

Uloric Linked to Severe Cardiovascular Side Effects

Uloric is linked to many severe cardiovascular side effects, including stroke, heart attack, myocardial infarction, heart disease, cardiac death, unstable angina (decreased blood-flow to the heart), and death.
