Manufacturer’s Liability in Actos Bladder Cancer Cases
Actos (Pioglitazone) is manufactured by Takeda Pharmaceuticals for treatment of Type II Diabetes, and has been on the market since 1999. We believe that Takeda's failure to adequately warn consumers of the increased risk of bladder cancer, and failure to warn about other potential medical problems, makes them potentially liable for your injuries and damages.
Some medical experts believe that Actos is dangerous enough that the FDA should issue a full recall of the medication, or that new and updated warnings should be included. Both France and Germany have already pulled the drug from their markets.
The largest concentration of Actos users to develop bladder cancer had been taking the medication between 2-5 years, but the next largest group had only been taking it for 1-6 months. No matter how short of a time you have been taking the drug, if you have Actos side effects, you should go see your doctor immediately.
Possible Actos Side Effects Can Include:
- Blood in urine
- Pain during urination
- Frequent urination
- Feeling of a need to urinate without results
- Bladder Cancer
- Heart Attack
