Rezulin (troglitazone)

Parke-Davis/Warner Lambert agree to FDA's request to withdraw Rezulin from the market. FDA asked Parke-Davis/Warner Lambert to withdraw Rezulin after a review of recent safety data on Rezulin and two similar drugs, Avandia (rosiglitazone) and Actos (pioglitazone), showed that Rezulin is more toxic to the liver than the other two drugs. Data to date show that Avandia and Actos, both approved in the past year, offer the same benefits as Rezulin without the same risk.
