Actos’s Heart Failure Risk

November 4, 2012

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cautions patients who take Actos (pioglitazone) for their Type 2 diabetes that this powerful medication may increase the risk of heart failure. This cardiac risk is in addition to the well-documented rise in the incidence of bladder cancer for patients taking Actos for longer than one year.


As if the risks of Actos were not distressing enough, some patients received the drug without receiving a full disclosure of the risks related to this powerful drug product. The failure to sufficiently warn is possibility significant, influencing treatment strategies and eliminating meaningful patient and doctor choice.
