The US Drug Watchdog Initiates A National Investigation Of The Diabetes Drug Called Actos & Wants To Hear From Any User If They Developed Bladder Cancer

November 21, 2011

The US Drug Watchdog wants to hear from any user of the diabetes drug called Actos, who developed bladder cancer. 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 developed bladder cancer please call our group immediately at 866-714-6466.” http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

The US Drug Watchdog says, “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 then developed bladder cancer, please have them call us at 866-714-6466.” http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
