Avandia can cause or contribute to heart problems by causing your body to retain fluids. Retaining fluids in the body can contribute to heart failure or worsen existing heart problems. Using Avandia may be linked with inadequate blood supply to the heart, which causes heart attack and other heart problems. Avandia is generally not recommended for people with heart failure or other heart problems.
