Actos Injury Lawyer

Actos (generic name: pioglitazone) is used as part of a treatment program to control Type 2 diabetes that includes a restricted diet, exercise and other supportive drugs. In June of 2011, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a warning that stated extended use of Actos has been associated with an increased risk of bladder cancer. Other severe medical conditions that diabetes patients may have suffered from because of Actos include: liver problems, fractured bones, heart failure, blindness and death. (As with any medication, patients should not stop using a prescribed drug without first speaking with their physician.) Those who have suffered these conditions should first consult with a physician and then with an Actos injury lawyer to discuss filing an injury claim.
