How Can We Help?

Actos® Diabetic Medication

Actos®  is a prescription medication that is used to treat Type II diabetes. Use of this drug has been linked to an increased risk of bladder cancer. Some people have also suffered congestive heart failure while taking Actos® .

Actos®  was first approved by the FDA in 1999. It was not until 2010 that the manufacturer alerted the FDA and US regulators to the potential link to bladder cancer.

If you are currently taking Actos® or took it previously and have been diagnosed with cancer, stop hesitating and contact our office now for a FREE consultation.

It is important to pay attention to your symptoms and make note of them.

Common symptoms of issues may include:

  • Pain during urination
  • Blood in your urine
  • Increased need to urinate
  • Back and lower abdominal pain


Although Actos®  was recalled and has been shown to increase the risk of bladder cancer, the FDA has not pulled the drug from the shelves. Patients are still being prescribed Actos®  and can take it as part of their diabetes treatment plan.

If you or someone you love has been injured or affected by Actos® , you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Dangerous side effects and undisclosed information by the manufacturer can lead to a claim.

Law suits have been brought against the manufacturers of Actos®  for failure to warn the public and doctors about the risks involved in long term use. Additional allegations include a lack of testing, providing misleading data, and an accusation that the drug was marketed despite knowledge that it could cause serious harm.
