Has your health been injured from using Actos?
Actos, a prescription drug used to treat Type 2 diabetes, has been linked with serious side effects and health complications in users. These side effects include a higher risk for congestive heart failure as well as for serious liver problems and bladder cancer. Because of the growing connection between the use of Actos and heart failure, label warnings from the FDA were increased in 2007. Furthermore, a long-term study revealed an increased risk of bladder cancer in Actos users, most especially those who had used it the longest at the highest dosage.
