Have You or Someone You Love Suffered Harm After Using Actos?

The Goss Law Firm — Your Kansas City Dangerous Drug Attorneys

Manufactured by the Japanese company Takeda Pharmaceuticals, Actos (pioglitazone) is a medication used in the treatment of Type 2 diabetes. The drug works by causing the cells to be more responsive to insulin, and reducing the amount of glucose in the blood.  Unfortunately, this potentially life-saving drug is reported to cause bladder cancer, kidney disease and congestive heart failure. According to a study, Actos increases a person’s risk of bladder cancer by 83%.

As a result of lost trials linking the drug to bladder cancer, Takeda Pharmaceuticals has settled approximately 9,000 claims in the United States for damages between $2.37 billion and $2.7 billion. There are currently more than 10,000 state and federal lawsuits in the United States against Takeda brought on by patients who allege their injuries have been caused by Actos.

Potential Signs of Bladder Cancer

    • Blood in Urine
    • Painful Urination
    • Frequent Urination
    • Back & Abdominal Pain
