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.

If you or a loved one experienced negative side effects from this drug, our New York Actos injury attorneys are here to help. Call us at (888) 365-4940 today to schedule your free consultation.

FDA Requires Warnings Regarding Risks Posed By Actos

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a statement requiring the manufacturers of this drug to immediately include a black box warning on every Actos package. In addition, the FDA has further released alerts to warn patients of the dangers and side effects associated with the use of Actos.

Presently, there are hundreds, if not thousands, of pending lawsuits by innocent victims of the side effects caused by the use of the Actos drug on which they relied to ensure prolonged living. Every day, another innocent person falls victim to the side effects of Actos.
