Exubera Warnings and Precautions

Exubera warnings and precautions include the risk of low blood sugar, the potential for allergic reactions, and the danger of taking the medication while pregnant or breastfeeding. Before starting treatment, talk to your healthcare provider if you have lung problems, allergies, or have smoked within the past six months. Exubera warnings and precautions also extend to people who have liver or kidney problems.

In October 2007, Pfizer announced it will stop making Exubera. This decision was voluntary and was not based on any safety concern; Pfizer states that Exubera has not met its expectations in terms of sales. Starting in October 2007, Exubera will be available for an additional three months, which will give people enough time to change from Exubera to another type of insulin or other diabetes medication.
