FDA Warns Actos Patients to Beware of Risk
Actos (pioglitazone), the medication frequently prescribed to Type 2 diabetes patients in order to decrease their insulin resistance, is a dangerous drug. Sold as a single ingredient product under the brand name Actos or sold in combination with metformin and glimepiride, pioglitazone treatments substantially increase the risk that patients develop bladder cancer, according to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
The risk of Actos-induced bladder cancer is particularly prominent among patients who take pioglitazone treatments for longer than one year. If you’ve noticed symptoms of bladder cancer such as red color urine, urgent urination, or painful urination, you should talk to a trusted medical professional as soon as possible.
