Consumer Reports urges consumers to avoid Actos

Posted on September 10th, 2012 No Comments

Days after the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) approval of a generic version of Actos (pioglitazone), consumer advocacy group Consumer Reports released a statement claiming that the risks of using pioglitazone far outweigh its benefits.

The group asks customers to avoid Actos and its generics unless other treatments have failed them, citing the drug’s dangerous side effects, which include increased risk of heart failure and bladder cancer.

Consumer Reports recommends diabetes patients use metformin instead of drugs that contain pioglitazone.

If you have taken Actos as directed and developed bladder cancer, there is a strong chance that the two are related.
