The US Drug Watchdog Now Wants To Hear From Any User Of The Diabetes Drug Called Actos If They Developed Bladder Cancer
The US Drug Watchdog says, “We want to hear from any US citizen, who was using the diabetes drug called Actos, and then developed bladder cancer. We are urging family members of bladder cancer victims, to ask their loved one if they were using Actos.” According to the AP, “The FDA has issued a warning that Actos may be linked to an increased risk of bladder cancer. Meanwhile, both Germany and France have suspended sales of Actos. The Actos suspension is effective July 11, 2011. Actos (pioglitazone), along with another diabetes drug made by Takeda Pharmaceutical, Competact, came under fire in Europe after a study revealed an increased risk for bladder cancer among diabetes patients who were taking the medication.” The US Drug Watchdog says, “We want to hear from any user of the diabetes medication called Actos, if they have developed bladder cancer. If after using Actos you, or a loved one developed bladder cancer please call our group immediately at 866-714-6466.” http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

The US Drug Watchdog says, “We are extremely worried about US citizens, who were using the diabetes drug called Actos, and bladder cancer. There may be a elevated incidence of bladder cancer for users of the diabetes drug called Actos, and we want to identify every US victim, in the hopes we can get them some meaningful help.” Actos is a member of a class of drugs known as thiazolidinediones, which have been linked to bladder cancer. Actos side effects include increased risk of congestive heart failure, and an increased risk for bladder cancer. In August 2011, the first lawsuits were filed against Actos manufacturer Takeda Pharmaceuticals blaming the diabetes drug for instances of bladder cancer. Victims are suing for financial compensation for the cost of hospital bills and loss of income, as well as physical and emotional suffering. Legal experts predict that these are the first of many Actos lawsuits that will be filed.The US Drug Watchdog says, “We want to identify any user of the diabetes drug called Actos, if they have developed bladder cancer.” For more information please call the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via their web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
The US Drug Watchdog says,”One of the biggest problems we have with respect to our drug initiative work, is the average US consumer never hears about a drug recall, or serious side effects related to a specific drug’s use. If you have a friend, or loved one, who was, or is using the diabetes drug called Actos, who has developed bladder cancer, please have them call us at 866-714-6466.” http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
