FDA’s New Labels Tell Truth about Actos Risks

September 25, 2011

Patients who take Actos (pioglitazone) should know that earlier this fall the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the federal agency tasked with promoting and protecting public health through the regulation and supervision of pharmaceutical drugs, approved updated drug labels for pioglitazone-containing medicines. Thanks to FDA intervention, new labels must explicitly communicate that the ingestion of Actos and similar dangerous drugs for more than one year has been associated with an increased risk of bladder cancer.

 

Think this is the FDA’s first warning against Actos and other medications containing pioglitazone? Think again. In June of this year, in fact, the FDA intervened in the pharmaceutical market to underscore the very real risk of bladder cancer for patients taking Actos for more than one year.
