Legal Help For Individuals Suffering From Bladder Cancer After Taking Actos
More than 2 million people in the U.S. take the drug Actos (Pioglitazone). Approved in 1999 for control of type 2 diabetes, Actos has become the 10th best-selling drug in the U.S.
However, Actos has been shown to increase the risk of bladder cancer by as much as 40% when taken for a year or more. Because of the known side effects of Actos, it has been the subject of FDA warnings and a recall in France due to increased risks of bladder cancer. Many individuals have filed claims in Actos litigation, seeking financial compensation for Actos-related bladder cancer and other dangerous side effects they've suffered as a result of taking the drug.
France has banned it and Germany has warned that new patients should not start taking it. In addition, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning on June 15, 2011 about the risks of Actos (e.g., bladder cancer). Consumers need to know that even though the FDA has not issued a recall, there are still serious consequences associated with taking this drug, including bladder cancer. Actos is manufactured and sold by Takeda Pharmaceuticals and Eli Lilly.
