Actos Linked to Bladder Cancer

Recent studies indicate that Actos users may have an increased risk of bladder cancer the longer the medication is taken.

Because the Actos manufacturer failed to adequately warn of these risks, or design a safe product, you may be entitled to compensation if you have been diagnosed with a cancerous bladder tumor or bladder cancer.

To have a potential bladder cancer lawsuit reviewed by one of our Actos lawyers, request a free consultation and claim evaluation. Your case will be handled as on a contingency fee basis, which means there is no out-of-pocket expense to you.  Any attorney’s fees and expenses come out of your recovery, not your checkbook.

Actos Information and News

Actos (pioglitazone) is a diabetes medication manufactured and sold by Takeda Pharmaceuticals.  Actos is for treatment of Type 2 diabetes. 

New research indicates that Actos users may face more of a risk of bladder cancer after extended use of Actos.  Health regulators in the United States and other countries throughout the world are exploring whether these risks should mean Actos is not appropriate for patients.  Always consult with a physician regarding starting or stopping medications.

While there have been new warnings put out for Actos, some experts contend that Actos should be recalled due to the increased risk of bladder cancer.
