Actos Side Effects
Evaluate Your Symptoms
Many people who were prescribed Actos® for their type 2 diabetes were told that they would only suffer from mild side effects such as headache and muscle pain. In reality, the health risks were far more serious and many patients didn't find out until it was too late. The FDA warned in 2011 of the more serious side effects of Actos®, but the drug is still on the market and prescribed to many people every year. If you are suffering from any of the following side effects, it could be a sign that you are suffering from one of those more serious Actos® side effects:
- Distorted vision
- Changes in urination- painful, frequent or difficult
- Bloody or abnormal urine
- Intense abdominal or back pain
Actos® is a type of Pioglitazone, which the FDA has been warning about since 2007. This drug is known to increase the risk of blood clots and heart problems that could lead to stroke and heart attacks. It also is known to cause fluid retention which could result in anything from weight gain to congestive heart failure. One of the more recent and severe side effects of the drug is bladder cancer. Those who have been taking Actos® for at least a year could be at a 40 percent increased risk of developing bladder cancer. If you notice changes in urination and pain in your abdomen, this could be a sign that you have developed this disease. Seek the help of a medical professional for a diagnosis, and then call an experienced Actos® lawyer who can help you file a lawsuit and get the claim you deserve.
