Are Your Cancer Symptoms Related to Actos?

June 3, 2012

The symptoms of bladder cancer aren’t surprising to most patients: bloody or red urine, pain while urinating, and pain in the lower back, to name a few. However, it is a surprise when bladder cancer patients learn what might be the cause: Actos (pioglitazone) medications such as Actoplus Met and Duetact.

 

Are you a Type 2 diabetes patient? Your doctor may have prescribed you a pioglitazone-based medication and, as a result, unsuspectingly exposed you to an elevated risk for bladder cancer. According to an FDA report on an ongoing medical study, patients who take Actos for more than a year face a 40% higher risk of developing bladder cancer. The risk to patients is so high that French health officials have banned the drug altogether.
