The US Drug Watchdog Now Urges Family Members of Diabetics Who Now Have Bladder Cancer To Ask if They Were Using the Drug Called Actos So The Victims Can Get Identfied
The US Drug Watchdog says, “We think diabetics using the diabetes drug called Actos, who then developed bladder cancer may become one of our group’s more important drug initiatives ever. We now need the help of loved ones, or family members of diabetics, who now have bladder cancer, to ask if the diabetic was, or has been using the drug called Actos. There appears to be a correlation between US diabetics, bladder cancer, and the drug called Actos, and we want to identify every possible victim, in order we make certain they get to the best possible attorneys.” 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 have already said we think our Actos initiative for diabetics, who after using this drug developed bladder cancer may be one of our important initiatives ever. We are also convinced the damages associated with this mess could be in hundreds of thousands of dollars, or more per victim, so we are in the process of putting together a team of the absolute best trial attorneys in the nation to help these victims. In the mean time, we are urging family members, or loved ones of US diabetics, who have developed bladder cancer, to ask if the bladder cancer victim was also using the diabetes drug called Actos. This is a very big deal, and we want to get every US diabetic, who was using Actos, and then developed bladder cancer to get identified. We do not think the average bladder cancer victim, who was also a diabetic would ever consider a drug for diabetics could have been a contributing factor for bladder cancer, so we are urging loved ones, or family members to ask the question.” 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. The US Drug Watchdog says, “We want to identify any user of the diabetes drug called Actos, if they have developed bladder cancer, and we think we will need the help of family members, and loved ones to get these victims identified.” 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
