Dangerous Drug Alert:
Actos & Bladder Cancer Risk
Were you diagnosed with bladder cancer while taking Actos? If so, you may deserve compensation for the suffering you’ve been through, your medical bills, and your time off work. You trusted Actos to help treat your Type 2 diabetes, but instead it may have led to bladder cancer.
Our attorneys at Edgar Snyder & Associates can help protect your rights and get you the money you need.
What is Actos?
Actos is the brand name drug for pioglitazone, which is used to treat Type 2 diabetes.
In patients with Type 2 diabetes, the body cannot process insulin like it should – so it can’t control the amount of sugar in the bloodstream. This is different than those with Type 1 diabetes, when the body does not produce insulin at all.
Pioglitazone is in a class of drugs called thiazolidinediones, and it functions by making the body more sensitive to insulin, so that it can control blood sugar levels better. Actos is manufactured by Takeda.
FDA Continues to Review Drug’s Possible Link to Bladder Cancer
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is reviewing a study that focused on Actos and whether it increases patients’ risk of bladder cancer. The drug’s manufacturer analyzed data after five years and found that some patients may be at risk – especially those who have been taking the drug long-term and those who have taken large amounts of the drug over time.
