Actos & Your Loved One

If your loved one suffers from Type 2 diabetes, they may have turned to Actos (pioglitazone) in an attempt to treat their condition. While Actos may offer temporary relief, long-term Actos patients should be aware of the risk of this drug.


The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has been clear that pioglitazone treatments lasting longer than twelve months have a significantly increased likelihood of causing harm to the patient. By one estimate, the chances of developing bladder cancer could increase by as much as 40 percent as a result of extended pioglitazone treatments. In fact, health agencies in France and Germany have taken an even more aggressive stance regarding Actos than has the FDA.


Are you surprised to hear about the harsh effects of Actos? Do you want to know more? You deserve to know all of the facts about this powerful drug, particularly if the original prescription did not include these important details. Your loved one’s rights may have been impacted by his pioglitazone treatments. To learn what you need to know, contact the professionals at Fears Nachawati today.
