ACTOS BLADDER CANCER PROBLEMS
Actos Bladder Cancer Lawyers
The lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk are pursuing Actos bladder cancer suits for individuals throughout the United States.
All cases are investigated with no fees unless a recovery is obtained.
Actos (pioglitazone) is a medication manufactured and sold by Takeda Pharmaceuticals for treatment of Type 2 diabetes. The drug is part of the same class of medications as Avandia (rosiglitazone), which has been linked to an increased risk of heart problems. As a result of concerns about Avandia side effects, sales of Actos have grown substantially in recent years.
Studies suggests that side effects of Actos may cause users to face an increased risk of bladder cancer. The potential risk of Actos cancer problems is now being reviewed by health regulators in the United States and other countries throughout the world.
Some experts believe that an Actos recall should be issued or that much stronger warnings about the risk of bladder cancer from Actos should be added to the medication.
Possible signs or symptoms of Actos bladder cancer may include:
- Blood in the Urine
- Pain During Urination
- Frequent Urination
- Feeling of Need to Urinate Without Results
Although it appears that information about the risk of Actos cancer problems has been known to the manufacturer for some time, inadequate warnings were provided to consumers and the medical community.
