Actos Drug Claims

Manufactured by Takeda Pharmaceuticals and marketed by Eli-Lilly and Company in the US, Actos (or pioglitazone) is a medication used to control blood sugar in persons suffering from type 2 diabetes. As of writing this web page, Actos is one of the top 15 best selling drugs in America. The Federal Drug Administration, in 2011, issued a warning stating that Actos use for more than one year may be associated with an increased risk for bladder cancer. This report stemmed from a 10-year study that found that Actos users could be 40 percent more at risk to develop bladder cancer.

Call Our Carrollton Actos attorneys if you or a loved one meets the following criteria:

  • Took the diabetes drug Actos for more than one calendar year; and
  • Developed Bladder Cancer

Common Side Effects

Actos is supposed to improve blood sugar (glucose) in type 2 diabetes patients when coupled with diet and exercise. It is an oral tablet that belongs to the thiazolidinedione drug class, and its purpose is to lower blood glucose and increase the body’s sensitivity to insulin. Rather than helping people, as it should, prolonged Actos use has been linked to putting users significantly at risk for bladder cancer. The manufacturer, Japanese giant Takeda Pharmaceuticals has updated the label to include the following:

“[p]reclinical and clinical trial date, and results from an observational study suggest an increased risk of bladder cancer in pioglitazone users. The observational data further, suggest that the risk increases with duration of use. Do not use in patients with active bladder cancer. Use caution when using in patients with a prior history of bladder cancer.”
