Earlier news about GalaxoSmithKline’s widely used diabetes drug, Avandia reported heart problem side effects for the drug.

Following the initial findings reported in the New England Journal of Medicine, the number of reports tripled in the following month, as physicians likely began making the connection between their patients heart problems and Avandia, according to the Associated Press, which obtained the information through a Freedom of Information Act request to the FDA.
