The Risks and Rewards of Actos
Actos patients face a big risk with their pioglitazone treatments. Although the possibility of major injury is relatively small in the short-run, as time passes the risk of developing bladder cancer trends upward. In fact, by the twelfth month of Actos treatments, the risk of cancer can be as much as 40 percent higher than that of patients not taking Actos.
Clearly, there are rewards to taking Actos. For Type 2 diabetes patients, the benefits of Actos may justify the risks. However, sadly too many patients weren’t able to make this decision for themselves because the maker of this powerful – and potentially lethal – drug failed to appropriately or completely warn patients about the drug’s risks.
