Actos Patients: Dosage Correlates with Risk

February 26, 2012

Actos (pioglitazone) is a dangerous drug for patients who take high doses over a long period of time, according to a multi-year analysis by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). While the risk of Actos-induced bladder cancer is low at small cumulative dosage levels, there’s a significant spike in risk level for most Actos patients as they approach a year of taking regular Actos treatments.


What does this mean for Type 2 diabetes patients who rely on Actos to control blood sugar levels? For some, it means that the carcinogenic risks of Actos may outweigh its benefits.
