Avandia can cause liver problems, or make existing liver problems worse. Talk with your doctor about any liver problems you have had before you take Avandia. If you take Avandia, your doctor will most likely check your liver function with blood tests before and during treatment. You should be aware of the symptoms of liver problems, and report them to your doctor right away if you experience them. These symptoms include dark urine, yellowing of the eyes or skin, lack of appetite, stomach pain, vomiting or nausea, and unusual tiredness.
