When Should an Actos Patient File a Lawsuit?

February 27, 2013

Type 2 diabetes patients have limited options when considering how to manage their medical condition. For many, Actos (pioglitazone) has been an important weapon in their arsenal. Unfortunately, however, Actos isn’t a silver bullet and, what’s worse, may cause some patients to shoot themselves in the foot.

 

In recent years, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the health community have increasingly publicized the side effects associated with Actos. Their reports indicate that for diabetes patients who take Actos for more than one year, the likelihood of developing bladder cancer or similar, related conditions can be as high as 40 percent.

 

When is the right time to take action against the maker of this powerful prescription drug? If you didn’t know about the side effects of Actos when you began treatments and you’ve now begun experiencing bladder-related side effects, it may be time to visit with a dedicated attorney from the law firm of Fears Nachawati.
