Injuries Caused by Actos

Contact Our Defective Drug Attorneys in San Antonio

Actos is one of the best-selling prescription drugs in the United States. Patients use Actos to help manage diabetes. But, an ongoing study by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has revealed problems with Actos—the prescription drug may increase the risk of bladder cancer.

We have represented hundreds of Texans (and obtained great results) in all types of injuries and accidents, including those cases involving defective drugs.

Doctors Advised Not to Prescribe Actos

Government health agencies in Europe have advised—in some cases, forced—doctors and other healthcare providers to stop prescribing the drug pioglitazone, which is marketed as Actos in the U.S. As one of the best-selling prescription drugs in the nation, Actos is used by millions to treat Type 2 diabetes, helping to reduce blood sugar.

Unfortunately, Actos may cause serious complications, including:

  • Bladder cancer – Patients who have taken Actos for longer than one year or in high doses may find themselves with an increased risk of developing bladder cancer—as high as 40 percent, according to the FDA.

The millions of patients who have taken Actos may experience the relatively mild side effects of headaches and sinus infections; others may find themselves with bladder cancer.
