Does Your Physician Still Prescribe Actos for Your Diabetes?

September 1, 2011

For months, the FDA has warned that Actos (Pioglitazone), a drug designed to combat diabetes, may do more harm than good. Now registered in the thiazolidinedione (TZD) class, health experts now acknowledge that Actos has serious side effects.

 

Doctors have options besides Actos. Many clinicians are electing to use incretin therapy instead of Actos (Pioglitazone) when metformin no longer works with type 2 diabetes patients. Of course, this raises an important question: is your doctor considering the significant adverse health effects of Actos before continuing your prescription?

 

Do you have blood or red color in your urine? Do you an urgent need to urinate? Does it hurt to urinate? Have you noticed increased pain or discomfort in your back or lower stomach? These kinds of discomfort are associated with bladder cancer. If you’ve been experiencing these outcomes, it may be past time to abandon Actos.
