The import and manufacture of rosiglitazone, an anti-diabetic medicine, has been suspended in the country with immediate effect, as per the order of signed by the Drug Controller General of India on 07-Oct-2010.

The order has asked all state drug controllers to suspend all the licences granted to manufacture for sale and distribution of rosiglitazone and its fixed dose combinations with other medicines with immediate effect.

The decision was taken on the basis of the recommendation of the Expert Committee as "its continued use would lead to more cardiovascular events and adverse effects on lipid profile."

Rosiglitazone and its formulations have already been suspended by European Medicines Agency last month. The U. S. Food and Drug Administration has also said that it will restrict the use of this anti-diabetic medicine to patients with Type-2 diabetes who cannot control their diabetes with other medications.
