The Dangers Of Using Actos

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Actos in 1999 for the treatment of Type II diabetes. Japanese drug maker Takeda manufactures Actos. Since its entrance to the market in 1999, many scientific studies and reports have linked the use of Actos to an increased risk of bladder cancer. In light of the scientific studies and reports, a June 15, 2011, FDA safety announcement asserted that an ingredient found in Actos increases the risk of cancerous tumors in the bladder for patients taking the drug for more than a year. The FDA advised that Actos should not be prescribed to any patients with bladder cancer or any patients with a history of the disease. Further, the FDA required Takeda to add new warnings to the Actos label in order to properly warn consumers of the possible risks of taking the drug.

Legal Claims And Actos Lawsuits

Actos lawsuits have been filed by Actos lawyers, on behalf of patients injured as a result of taking Actos, alleging that the drug manufacturer Takeda:

  • Withheld information concerning the risk of bladder cancer
  • Failed to provide adequate warnings with the drug Actos
