Actos & Your Parent’s Health

December 23, 2012

If either of your parents suffer from Type 2 diabetes, they probably have considered taking a pioglitazone-based medical product, such as Actos or Actoplus. Sadly, pioglitazone isn’t without its risks, including some serious potential complications.


How high are the risks associated with Actos? They are high enough to prompt several first-world countries to ban or severely restrict access to this potent drug. While the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the U.S. health agency, hasn’t banned pioglitazone drugs like Actos outright, they have carefully studied these prescription drugs and issued cautionary rulings about them. According to one research set, long-term exposure to Actos can result in a 40 percent higher risk of bladder cancer.


Want to know whether your parent’s health has been impacted by Actos and if those health effects have given rise to legal liability? The attorneys and counselors at the Dallas firm of Fears Nachawati can help answer these and many other important medical product liability questions.
