Actos Injury Lawyers in New York
Side Effects of Actos & Bringing a Claim
Actos, a prescription pill for diabetes known as pioglitazone, was introduced to the market in the late 1990s. It belongs to a class of drugs called thiazolidinediones that lower blood glucose levels and therefore raise the body’s sensitivity to insulin. This reduction in blood glucose levels is vital for people suffering from Type-2 diabetes. Actos has been prescribed to millions of diabetic patients suffering from Type-2 diabetes as a solution and an aid in living normal lives. Recent studies, however, have shown that the use of Actos may have devastating and life-threatening side effects such as bladder cancer, heart attacks, anemia, myalgia, and more.
