Our firm is committed to seeking justice for individuals who have suffered serious injury or illness after taking the drug Actos for at least 12 months
LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY (PRWEB) November 13, 2013
Though the type 2 diabetes drug Actos remains available to consumers, a significant number of Actos lawsuits are being filed across the country. Victims claim that the drug has caused various serious side effects, including bladder cancer. (1)
In 2011, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released a safety announcement to inform the public that the use of the diabetes medication Actos (pioglitazone) for more than one year may be associated with an increased risk of bladder cancer. FDA officials alerted both patients and healthcare providers to the fact that Actos should not be used by anyone with active bladder cancer; those with a prior history of bladder cancer should also be cautious. (2)
Symptoms of bladder cancer can include: (3)
- Blood found in the urine
- Pain while urinating
- Needing to urinate, but not being able to
- Back or abdominal pain
- Loss of appetite and weight
