Actos Patients Should Know the Symptoms of Bladder Cancer

November 20, 2011

When is an urgent need to urinate, red colored urine, pain while urinating, or pain in the lower abdomen more than just a nuisance or discomfort? If you take Actos, these irritations could be symptoms of a larger, more critical concern: bladder cancer.

 

Medical researchers have repeatedly found that Actos (pioglitazone), a drug originally designed to help people suffering from diabetes, can cause patients to develop bladder cancer. The risk of bladder cancer is particularly high among patients who take Actos or other pioglitazone treatments for longer than one year. In fact, according to one study, pioglitazone treatments beyond twelve months increased the incidence of bladder cancer by more than 40 percent.

 

Surprised by these statistics? Tragically, so are many Actos patients. Actos manufacturers failure to sufficiently warn medical professionals and their patients has contributed to a large and growing number of pioglitazone victims. Are you concerned that you or a loved one may be one of these victims? Talk to the dangerous drug experts at Fears Nachawati today to find out about your rights.
