Advances in medical technology and in the pharmaceutical industry have led to the creation and distribution of drugs to treat conditions much more effectively than in the past. While innovation and entrepreneurship have led to many successes in treating many diseases and medical conditions, some drugs have side effects that their manufacturers either didn't know about or hid from the public.
Actos is a drug prescribed to people with Type 2 diabetes, also known as adult-onset diabetes. The intent of the drug was to help to control blood sugar levels. However, subsequent studies have linked to Actos to instances of bladder cancer and heart failure.
Symptoms Associated with Bladder Cancer:
- Back pain
- Lower abdominal pain
- Blood in urine
- Pressing need to urinate
- Painful feeling during urination
If you or a loved one has had any of these symptoms following the use of the drug Actos, you need to speak to your doctor right away. If you have developed bladder cancer or other serious medical problems after taking Actos, you may have grounds to file a lawsuit.
