Confusing New Warning Label on Avandia

If you take the popular diabetes drug Avandia, you should take notice at the new warning label. 

The FDA has strengthened the warning label on Avandia to include an increased risk for heart attack. But it may be a little confusing. Officials say the warning label will say that Avandia "may or may not" increase their risk of heart attack.

The reason is that while short term studies have linked Avandia to an increased heart attack risk, longer term studies have been inconclusive.

In the meantime, experts suggest that people with heart disease take something other than Avandia.
